Butter infused with flakes of black truffle – a very simple product that requires a long preparation to ensure the scent and flavour of the truffles is maintained over a long time (a secret passed down in the Brezzi family). It’s the perfect spread for all your tapas. Transform your scrambled eggs, or add it to rice, pasta, and tomatoes for a luxurious taste. Since it’s only butter and truffles, you can store it in the fridge for long time. Pairs well with red wine.
It is said that the truffle had divine origins, and most sophisticated palates would agree – this mushroom tastes heavenly! The truffle grows hidden underground – a magical gift of nature nestled among the roots of trees. Osvaldo Brezzi has continued the tradition of his grandfather and father, and has now passed it on to his nephew, Paolo. He has learned the skills needed to preserve the perfume and the freshness of those jewels, and then create truffle-based products with an unmistakable, unique taste. He retains his forebears’ passion regardless of this more frantic, impatient age, where people are less prepared to wait patiently for the gifts of earth’s bounty or listen to the wisdom of the truffle men.
Osvaldo expertly observed the sky, waiting for rain to scour the lands which yield the best truffles. I listened as he recalled his childhood trips to fields and woods with his grandfather and father. He remembered visiting proud farmers to buy their exquisite truffles and provide them with a vital economic lifeline.
