Slurping to my heart’s content, I recently gave myself a well-deserved treat with Angelini’s Original Pasta Box ($43). Packed with creamy sea urchin, sweet prawns, and plump sliced scallops, every strand of the chilled capellini was coated beautifully with their white truffle emulsion. Delicately twirled, the thin angel hair pasta also held a nice bite. But the star of the show was really the dressing. A wonderous pairing of kombu and truffle oil, the truffle aroma was a little more nuanced while the umami kombu flavour hits stronger. Hence, perfumed with the lingering earthy scent, each component take on more of a savoury flavour yet their distinct sweetness was still able to shine. What’s more, the freshness of the seafood was truly impressive. I also enjoyed the clean flavours of the pasta box and that extra dose of white truffle emulsion on the side was the icing on the cake. Exquisite and balanced!
