Pljukanci in creamy mushroom sauce

I enjoyed this dish so much at Monte Carlo that when I went back, I talked the recipe out of chef, Adriano.

Pljukanci in creamy mushroom saucePlease note these are very rough quantities – just getting the ingedients list from Adriano was a challenge; quantities were even more problematic! Most often, the amount was ‘a little’ or ‘just enough’. My advice is experiment until you get this right. But do spend time getting good ingredients – it’s simple to make and its success depends absolutely on the quality of what goes into it (especially the truffle!). Perhaps better still, go to Monte Carlo and try Adriano’s version for yourself. Honest, it’s to die for!
