Bites: The truffles or the testicles, sir?
Sunday 09 November 2008
Credit crunch? What credit crunch? Bury your head in the sand for a night at Zafferano, the Michelin-starred Italian in Knightsbridge, for its annual "truffle menu", which features gloriously extravagant comfort-food dishes, including cheese fondue, risotto and sweet zabaglione, all made with white truffle.
Rare ingredients of a different kind are the theme of a new e-book, The Testicle Cookbook, which rather alarmingly includes recipes for testicle pizza, battered testicles and barbecued testicles with giblets. Bulls', stallions' and ostriches' are best, they say (get a sample – if you must at – beta.yudu. com/library/ item_ details/14618).
But enough testosterone... Soho's grandest pizza joint, Kettners, is set to re-open after a "female-friendly" makeover. The new look will, apparently, make it "a space people can use flexibly, by having breakfast, holding a business meeting, or just hanging out". Most exciting, though? Its new "Pudding Bar" which, minus truffles, promises comforting prices too.
