Produced in Piedmont, the spiritual home of the Italian truffle, this Black truffle carpaccio is made with Piedmont summer truffles and Italian extra virgin olive oil, nothing else.
Black truffle carpaccio not only is an ingredient that can be used to add flavour in hundreds of recipes, from starters to main courses, but it is often served as an appetizer, spread over a slice of warm bread.
The artisan who made it
Gran Cucina has its root in a farm at the beginning of the XIX century. After buying a farm, the great grand father of the current generation started growing vegetables whilst the great grand mother started preparing local delicacies using their own grown products. Within a few years the reputation went outside the village, they started to supply nearby cities and villages. The family got bigger and so more help came.
Now, more than a century after, the same family and the same recipes are followed, using only the best local produces, including the very famous Alba truffle which is used in many products, from extra virgin olive oil to truffle honey to truffle butter.
