The black diamond of french
gastronomy


Histoire

Black gold, black diamond or pearl : nothing could be too beautiful to evoke, describe or encapsulated the myriad subleties of the truffle, that precious fruiting fungus that inspired comparison with the finest gems for centuries. All that was lacking was a jeweller and its custom showcase.


Histoire

1932


Thus was born Maison de la Truffe in 1932, the jeweller providing this culinary diamond to the most delicate palates in France and abroad, offering multiple varieties of truffles and truffle products.

Brokers are the people on whom the sale of truffled, or « rabasse » in the local dialect, depends. They act as intermediaries between truffle finers and packers/retailers, who visit the markets to identify the best truffles, thanks to their experience and ancestral know-how.

It was this know-how and experience on the ground that enabled Maison de la Truffe to instantly establish itself as a luxury reference for quality ; its shop on Place de la Madeleine has since become a meeting place for gourmets.
