Shaved Parmesan Grated Truffle Tortellini

My mind still bends a little each time I smell truffle. It just never smells like edible food and it kicks off an olfactory argument in my brain.
I certainly don’t dislike it, and do enjoy it massively in its milder applications, but its can be phenomenally strong, strong enough to stop me in my tracks – which is not easily done when there’s a whole pile of delicious in the way.
Tortellini parcels of delicious pasta tossed in olive oil, Parmesan and truffle… I hope there’s a glass of Montepulciano somewhere close.
This was part of a grand shoot for LaRousse Foods catalogue. We shot it over a few days with all manner of great looking dishes and associated products.
