Method

For the filling

Grate the nutmeg into the milk and bring it to the boil; mix the melted butter with the flour, add the milk and cook on a slow heat for 5 minutes. Add the cheeses one at the time and mix until they have completely melted. Add 200g of cream and keep mixing until it starts to simmer. Turn the gas off, pass the mixture through a sieve and set it aside to cool.

For the truffle butter
Melt the butter in a pan - as soon as it starts bubbling add the sliced truffle and season. Cook on a medium heat for 3 minutes, then leave it to cool down to room temperature before blending it.

For the mixture
Boil the potatoes with their skins on. Drain them and let them cool. Once cooled peel and mash the potatoes. On a clean surface spread out the mashed potato, sprinkle with the flour, potato flour, the lightly beaten eggs, the Trentingrana cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg and mix everything into a dough. Knead the dough with your hands. Sprinkle some flour on your work surface then take a portion of your dough and using a rolling pin rollout a rectangle roughly 5cm by 40 cm. Wet one of the long sides of the rectangle and place small balls of the cheese filling roughly 3cm apart. Close the rectangle along the longer sides, and using a circular cutter, cut in half circles (half moons) to a diameter of about 3cm. Cook these in salted boiling water for 4 minutes from the moment the half moons float to the surface in the boiling water. Serve 5 half moons per plate, drizzle the truffle butter on top and garnish with the marinated truffle.
