Fondue with truffles

October 23, 2012


  • 1 kg of fontina cheese
  • milk
  • ten egg yolks
  • 100 gr butter
  • white truffles from Alba (optimum is 20-30 gr pro-capite)

What to prepare

  • A narrow and tall casserole
  • a casserole with a round bottom for the bain-maria
  • a wooden spoon


Dice the fontina cheese and place in a tall container covering it with milk.

Let it rest for a few hours. Put in a pot 100 grams of butter every 100 grams of fontina cheese and an egg yolk; add the cheese in the container with all the milk, place the pot in another pan with boiling water and briskly blend with a wooden spoon; the fontina will melt and will tend to harden again.

When it becomes a thick sauce, take it out of the bain-marie and serve very hot sprinkled with slices of truffle.
