Our truffle butter, produced in Piedmont, the spiritual home of the Italian truffle, is made using locally produced butter and shavings of fresh Piedmont black truffe.
This is a rich and intensely flavoured truffle butter, a very versatile ingredient, delicious when stirred into a bowl of pasta for some tagliatelle al tartufo or used as an ingredient when cooking, from scamble eggs to more complex recipes. This is a must have ingredient for any food lover that will add tons of flavour to any dish. Fantastic
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.
