The company founders, Domenica and Beppe, began business in the world of the truffle in 1968, selling fresh truffles from Piedmont. During those years, their restaurant “Da Beppe”, in the heart of Alba town, was designated by the Michelin guide as a reference point for lovers of cooking based on mushrooms and truffles. Tartuflanghe began in 1980 in order to profit from Beppe’s inspiration and culinary experience which had matured following a prestigious career: Head Chef aboard cruise ships from 1958 – 1966, teacher in a catering school, chef in the most well known restaurants of Piedmontese cuisine and then owner of his famous restaurant. The first truffle specialties were created to give aficionados the opportunity to enjoy good cooking and also truffles out of season. Thanks to this policy the kitchen laboratories of Tartuflanghe produced the first truffle pasta product in the world (awarded best new product of the year prize in 1992 at the Fancy Food Summer Show in New York). Tartuflanghe today is sold in the most prestigious gourmet food stores in Italy and appreciated in top class restaurants all over the world.
