The truffle is a mushroom that grows underground and has extraordinary features of aroma and taste.

It was already appreciated by the Romans, who considered it as a divine food (they thought that truffles was born from Jupiter’s lightning) and as a powerful and sophisticated aphrodisiac.

Truffles are among the most prized and valued products growing in the wild. In Italy they can be found in some central and northern regions: Piemonte, Marche, Umbria, Molise and Toscana.

The white truffle – Tuber magnatum Pico – is the rarest and most expensive for its organoleptic qualities, while the black one has a more intense flavour.

It can be eaten fresh (grated or in shavings) or in creams and pates that are easily found in the markets. BUY HERE >
