How to Make… Thai Noodles with Truffles & Prawns

Luxury ingredients are no longer exclusively concomitant with fine dining. Over the past five years, a huge rise in luxury comfort food has become impossible to overlook, with so many restaurants embellishing the globe’s most comforting “junk” food dishes with ingredients fit for the Monarchy. Amongst those dishes, truffles make the biggest appearance.

Celebrating the complete arrival of truffle season in the UK, Thai Square’s noodles with truffles and prawn use both fresh shaved truffles and truffle oil. First set up in 1996, Thai Square now has 13 restaurants in and around London, serving authentic, balanced and fresh Thai food. Although truffles are expensive, this recipe is relatively simple to follow at home, with deeply soothing results, ideal for the cold weather snap.
