White truffles have been central to my family since the early 1900s.
When I first started importing truffles in 2005, few of my clients knew how to distinguish grades of truffles or how to properly handle, store or even work with them. Furthermore, they didn’t even know where Istria was or that it had some of the best premium grade truffles in the world…never mind the best olive oil, honey, wild asparagus, wild mushrooms, wine…to name a few. Over the years, I took every opportunity to share everything I knew about truffles and other Istrian edibles. I am fortunate to have family in Istria who dedicate their lives to training truffle dogs, hunting, teaching and working in the production and trade of truffles. In fact, my cousin is a certified Truffle Sommelier. This is a fancy title for being a guru in the world of truffles. So when I personally do not know something, I always have the best resource in world of truffles in real time…all of the time.
It’s such a great pleasure to serve you and your family with the rarest culinary treasures in the world. It is even a greater joy to share the knowledge I have acquired over the years.
