A recipe from Chef Giuseppe Forte

Spaghettone di Gragnano with broad, beans, cuttlefish, and cream of sea truffle (tartufo di mare)

The Al Palazzo is no ordinary restaurant. Picture the kitchen being like an orchestra: the ingredients, like instruments, are all different but all important.

Each one is an essential part of the whole and to the ear, the finest of palates, harmony is the perfect fusion of sounds that blend together like the individual flavors.

The conductor of this orchestra is chef Giuseppe Forte, who with his signature touch measures and combines, modulates and enhances, flavors and textures of precious harmonic value.

And here we share one score out of the many symphonies of taste he has created: Spaghettone di Gragnano with broad, beans, cuttlefish, and cream of sea truffle (tartufo di mare).

Ingredients for 4 people:

360 g spaghetti

300 g tartufi di mare (sea truffle, similar to Venus clams found mostly in central coastal Italy)
