Thus was born Maison de la Truffe in 1932, the jeweler 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. Brokers in the famed town of Carpentras, know and renowned for its traditional wholesale truffle market, had the (excellent) idea of creating Maison de la Truffe to sell their truffles directly to Parisians.
In September 2016, Maison de la Truffe opened its first Atelier at Galeries Lafayette Gourmet in Paris. Invitation for a five senses journey around the precious mushroom, l’Atelier Maison de la Truffe offers a new concept around Truffle and Street Food, where the black diamond can be tasted in and out. 2016 has marked the opening of a Restaurant Bar Boutique in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, followed by an Atelier in the temple of luxury gastronomy, Siam Paragon. The menu offers a selection of Maison de la Truffe’s great classics and original creations, tasty mix between Thaï cuisine and French know-how.
Opening of a new Atelier Maison de la Truffe at La Grande Epicerie de Paris, Parisian luxury gastronomy temple located Rive Gauche. Great Classics and original creations can be tasted at the counter. The culinary diamond is also offered in a large range of Truffled products. Today, the family business has become a key location for the most demanding truffle enthusiats, as well as for amateur gourmets wishing to discover this fine gastronomic jewel through a variety of quality products created for the enjoyment of the subtlety of the truffle in all its possible forms.
The Atelier Maison de la Truffe is located in the heart of the Gare du Sud station. Located in the heart of the city of Nice, La Gare du Sud, built in 1892, was one of the busiest stations of the 19th century. Today, this emblematic building is being renovated to make way for a major place of gastronomy. This urban and contemporary place reveals an original concept centred around three areas: gastronomy, culture and vintage. This living space hosts gastronomic and innovative concepts around 26 corners composed of kiosks, restaurant counters, and a bar. Among these spaces, there is a friendly and gourmet space designed by L'Atelier Maison de la Truffe. A festive and friendly menu featuring the House's must-have recipes such as risotto with truffle, brouillade with truffle and a selection of wines. The dishes can be enjoyed on site in a friendly atmosphere around large shared wooden tables or installed in the sun on one of the many private terraces spread around the building. A takeaway package specially designed for the Gare du Sud is also available for lovers of fresh truffles. The 15m2 stand will feature a grocery space that will feature the flagship products of the Maison de la Truffe.
