Formaggio al Forno con Tartufo Nero | Baked Cheese with Black Truffles

Every time we visit Pienza, Italy, I make sure to pay a few visits to my favorite little trattoria, Sette di Vino, where we love to sit outside on the charming patio. We always order the melted Pecorino cheese smothered with black truffles and a bottle of Capitoni Frasi, from the Capitoni winery, also located in Pienza. When I am back home, I can recreate my memories by making this recipe and uncorking a great bottle of Frasi, which we now exclusively import to the US! Salute!!

Round of Mild Creamy Soft Ripened Cheese

Black Truffles, thinly sliced


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut parchment paper into a round to prevent the cheese from sticking. Place the cheese on top of the parchment paper in a baking dish. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Sprinkle the truffle slices right on top. Serve immediately with some crispy crostini; see the recipe.
