Some food is destined to always enhance your tasting experience. We wish to give you a rare delight and opportunity to taste something that cannot be copied nor grown anywhere else but the original places and will take your senses on a journey.
First, we go to Italy and France, where some of Mother Earth’s most delightful, exquisite, sought-after treats are sure to elevate your special moments in life; The White and Black Truffles.
The White Truffle of Alba or the Tuber Magnatum Pico is a rare delight and not an opportunity to be missed. With its complex and intense fragrance, White Truffles are different from all other varieties. They are only found in Italy, in the Langhe and Montferrat areas of northern Italy around the Piedmont region, the country sides of Alba and Asti, and in the hill regions of Tuscany near certain trees. The White Truffles are harvested from September to December, requiring special conditions to grow, such as soil that is soft and moist throughout the year, rich with calcium and well ventilated. Rare and coveted, the White Truffle will transform any meal into an exclusive event.
Thanks to its gastronomic versatility, the Black Truffle or Tuber Melanosporum has become a main feature in French Nouvelle Cuisine. It is found mainly in France, where the Black Truffle is known as La Truffe Noire, and has always been used and appreciated in cooking. With a delicate and elegant aroma, a blackish-blue skin and blackish-purple pulp, it ripens in winter, in the first months of the year, in contact with oak, hornbeam and hazel trees. Its high yield in the kitchen has made it popular throughout the world.
