Offering mostly room-temperature dishes and letting people help themselves will simplify presentation. Most of us do not have the luxury of servers to pass hot offerings, so it is wise to restrict the hot dishes to no more than two or three and pass them yourself (or have a friend or partner help you) or keep them warm on a hot tray. In a more casual setting, you can pass family-style platters of room-temperature antipasti at the table and then serve a few hot dishes as they come off the stove.

Slowly add the half-and-half while whisking constantly, and then cook, continuing to whisk, until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and gradually whisk in the eggs. Then whisk in the cheese and the truffle paste, if using, until the mixture is smooth.
