Brioche Truffle Stuffing

With truffles, a little goes a long way. In this recipe, good ol' fashioned stuffing gets elevated by incorporating minced Sabitino Truffles. By pressing the stuffing using a waffle maker and serving under fried chicken, the familiar and nostalgic Chicken and Waffles gets a trendy twist, and the addition of truffle combined with unique presentation warrants a higher dish price point.

This play on traditional cold caprese features Belgioioso Mozzarella fried to melty perfection. By covering the cheese with a bread crumb mix and flash frying, the dish is winterized into a warm and comforting start to a meal.

Chocolate Pearl Tarte

This chocolate tart layers the sweetness of milk chocolate ganache with naturally pink ruby chocolate, and notes of floral and citrus. We like it topped with glazed strawberries and Barry Callebaut Dark Chocolate Pearl garnish for texture and crunch, but the sky is the limit. Consider incorporating alternate fruits, whipped cream, pastry cream and more.

Prosciutto Wrapped Risotto

Wrap a familiar risotto dish with Danielle Prosciutto to create an entirely new experience. The crispy prosciutto adds texture and helps contain the warm cheesy risotto making a clean presentation that holds up particularly well as a take-out dish.
