“The white truffle is entirely up to nature, not at all dependent on man,” emphasizes chef Tanka Sapkota, who since 1992 has been working to create special menus at his restaurant in Lisbon around this very special ingredient from the Alba region, in Italy.
It is not easy to get white truffles, which are “secretly” picked up and often disputed by chefs around the world, even being auctioned off. But in this field, Tanka Sapkota guarantees to have his triumphs. “Every year I go to Alba, where I’ve made friends, and where I have a truffle hunter who can get me the freshest truffles,” he says.
Since 1996 living in Portugal, after working in Germany and Italy, Tanka Sapkota fell in love and specializes in Italian cuisine. Today, it has three restaurants in Lisbon, where it serves excellent food: Come Prima, Forno d´Oro and Il Mercato. Over the next ten days, you can taste this delicate and exclusive delicacy at the Come Prima restaurant in Lisbon and enjoy the simplicity of these dishes that place the truffle in the centre of the palate and under the spotlight of the senses.
