We visited Guiliano Tartufi, YES WE DID......


I hear you think should we know Guiliano? A character from a new Netflix series?


Well no,

We were in Lucca, Italy and saw this shop. One of many we learned later. And also you might know the truffles he is selling in a beautiful shop with a variety of truffle products. We buy some when we come visit my parents in Italy to make our own pasta with at home. So we also did that now. I think its an franchise organisation because we saw the shops in la Spezia, Rome, Civitavecchia and Genua aswell.


What is a truffle? It is a fungus, but a very special one. It is a hypogenous which means it lives and grows undergroud. An anchor to myth says that thunder causes the truffles to grow.Truffles like soil where also the oak grows, because truffles live symbiotically with trees drawing nutrition from them and giving back warer and mineralsalts. There are may types of truffles.


These are the variety thats available and you might know.

WHITE TRUFFLE OR TRIFOLA Picking from 1st October till 31st December, the dates depend on regional regulaties, weather an change every year.Where found : Umbria, Piedmont, Tuscany and le Marche

**BLACK WINTER TRUFFLE **Picking from 15th November till 15 March, also according regional calanders. Where found : This one is mostly found in the central Appenines, Piedmont and Veneto.

BIANCHETTO TRUFFLE Caked from about 15th of January till 30th of April. This one is very smelly and has a bit of garlic smell when you use it in food.

**SUMMER TRUFFLE **Picking from the 1st of May till 31 August, this flavour is more delicate than other black truffles and it’s similar to the taste of porcini.

**HOOKED TRUFFLE **Picked from 1st of October till 31 December its the smallest and darkest, the smell is very strong but more pleasent and its flavour more pronounced.

All were available in a variety of products ranging from 5 to 500 euro’s.


How to preserve a Truffle? Well in the fridge or in a plastic box, wrapped in paper and maximal 10 days. You have change the paper every day to preserve the truffle from the humidity and that will help to let it live longer and stay healthy.


You either love or you hate the smell and taste of truffle. There is no in the middle. If you want to go and search for truffles in the season in Italy, see the blog i did some time ago and visit my friend in la Marche. There you can search for truffles as an excursions in the season.

They are on Instagram aswell Casadelfonte or on


We bought the parmigiano and fungi tartufi paste.

This was such a nice experience and for foodies like me and @cvds this is a must see and taste while we were in Italy last week for the cruise holiday. I will blog moord about what we all saw and did while we were away only i wanted to share this one today, and now i am off making dinner myself. I got Hungry from making this post.

And you continue @brittandjosie. Your way doesn't change does it? Always wanting to harm others for their own benefit. I feel sorry for you. May life take charge of bringing you some light. May your soul be forgiven for the evils you do. And stop targeting only steem money. That helps to grow the network and not only to earn rewards for their own benefit. I finish here, hope you don't answer me. Thanks!

Offcourse I will answer you, that’s what I do! That’s what steemit is all about. And if you tell me what I do wrong maybe my soul can change. But all you do is rant and not tell why you came to this conclusion and just downvote with 0 so I still help the network everyday and grow accordingly WHAT DO YOU DO ?
I don’t harm I love , you should try it!!!

I didn't understand exactly what those bottles were

That is a lot of info about fancy mushrooms. JK I know they are more than that I just don't really like them. But great way to explain that you do or you don't

This is so good but the smell is so strong

I had no idea there were so many types of truffles! What an education, and such an array of ways to enjoy them! So glad you had fun on your trip! 😊

Those shops were so special and the products oh my dear lord. But the prices are high. So I was glad to have the two pastes and going to make superdishes with them,
Thanks for stopping by

May I be invited for dinner, please? 😁

Yes you may dear ! I bought the paste because the real truffle was to expensive

I have never bought any and have only experienced truffles at restaurants.

WOW. That is such a cool experience @brittandjosie!! (:

I just get the feeling of luxury from your photos and descriptions of the truffle store!

Enjoy your Italy trip!! <3

I had the same thought entering the shop and looking around

amazing photography of yours as always

Truffles, good fresh ones, are so expensive in the US they cost minimum $300! I love them, but I can't cook with them myself the cost is too high. So off to high end restaurants I go in the fall for my truffle fix. Nice post. Yum.

I don’t cook with truffles either and so I use the paste that I bought

Oh I do have and use that now and then, but it is not at all the same as nice fresh truffles. Pastes are very good and a welcome flavor. Thanks for reminding me of my paste!
