Kitchen W8’s Truffle Menu
Hunting for truffles requires either,
1) A specially trained (and specifically female) truffle hog
2) A rare Italian breed of retriever known as a ‘Lagotto Romagnolo’
3) A reservation at Kitchen W8
And while we don’t want to presume which method is easiest for you, we will just take the time to talk about the new truffle menu at Kitchen W8; the Michelin-Starred jewel on Kensington’s Abingdon Road, with its art-laden walls and crisp white tablecloths.
The menu itself is a magnificent four-course affair that takes your tongue on an umami-loaded journey starting with baked potato with pickled walnuts & Périgord truffles. You’ll then move on to some hand-rolled spaghetti with aged parmesan and White Alba truffles. Then, the Label Rouge guinea hen with lightly smoked sausage roll arrives, decorated with Autumn truffles.
After that, the meaty, rich earthiness pivots to something a little sweeter, with some gingerbread ice cream, brown butter poached pear, caramelised wafers and warm truffle honey. And after that?
…You won’t have mushroom for anything else.
NOTE: The truffle menu at Kitchen W8 is available now, either a la carte, or as a full tasting menu. You can see the full menu HERE, and make a reservation at their website right HERE.
