Behold, the 1.17-pound black truffle that arrived at Restaurant Guy Savoy over the weekend. This marks the largest black truffle in Caesars Palace history, coming in at 531.8 grams and measuring six inches from the Périgord region of Southern France. The previous record for the largest black truffle at Restaurant Guy Savoy weighed just short of one pound.
To give you an idea of how far that goes at Guy Savoy, the truffle was used to create more than eight Black Truffle Prestige menus this past weekend with its seasonal ingredients combined to create signature dishes such as the artichoke and black truffle soup.
The $420 menu includes black truffle and mache winter salad, turbot à la plancha and sunchoke variations, foie-gras "en papillote" and black truffle duck consommé, artichoke and black truffle soup with toasted mushroom brioche and black truffle butter, roasted squab with spaghetti squash and black truffle croquette, lentils black truffle, brie black truffle and a chocolate spear.
Of course each item can be ordered a la carte.
The black truffle menu will be available until mid-March, so hustle up.
