The Eugenio Brezzi White Truffle, Tuber Magnatum Pico, is widely considered the finest of all the truffle species. Highly prized in refined French and Italian cuisines, the white truffle is one of the world’s finest gastronomic luxuries! Adding to its mystique, the white truffle is becoming more and more rare, as demand grows, while it cannot be mass produced or even cultivated at all. The only way to find a white truffle is the old way: hunted in the hills of the Italian Piedmont.

The truffle’s intoxicating aroma and exquisite flavor led the ancient Greeks to imagine they were created by peals of thunder striking the earth. Truffles are in fact astonishing tuberous mushrooms that grow underground near trees and are hunted with the assistance of trained dogs and pigs.

To set off its divine qualities to greatest advantage, the stellar white truffle should be allowed to gracefully dominate the simplest of dishes, from plain rice or pasta to meat or eggs.

All natural, preserved in just a little water and salt, these little nuggets are rough and plain in appearance, yet sublime in flavor and aroma. They are guaranteed to arouse and enchant.

The Brezzi company is a leading producer of truffles in Italy. Beginning in the years following the second World War, Eugenio Brezzi, with the help of his dog, started discovering truffles in the forest. His family business of processing truffles and producing truffle products grew quickly and earned international renown. Today Brezzi continues to bring the prized flavor of the forest into the world’s finest restaurants and gourmet shops, with carefully selected, authentic, all natural products. Naturally preserved, they contain no artificial colorings, preservatives or flavors.
