Last Saturday I attended the third annual Trufflepalooza, a totally truffle-infused party given by Erika of In Erika’s Kitchen. About 75 people were served 16 dishes which had some form of truffle goodness in each recipe, such as grated fresh truffles, truffle butter, truffle salt, truffle honey, truffle oil or a combination. Erika must be Super Woman, because she prepared all of the dishes by herself, with just a little help on the day of the bash.
Last year I helped in the kitchen on the day, and by the time the party started I was too worn out to take any photos. So this year I gave up the fun of helping in the kitchen, and decided to chronicle all the wonderful and beautiful dishes so you could see them. The photo above is of Truffled Shrimp and Pork Shu Mai, and the names of the dishes in the following gallery can be found by placing your cursor in the middle of the photo. Links to several of the recipes found on Erika’s website are at the end of this post. I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoyed shooting them.
If you’ve made it this far, I salute you. Imagine having tasted all those wonderful dishes and how truffle-infused you yourself would feel. It was fantastic!
Thank you Erika. Bravo!!
