Favuzzi dried Truffles
Once rehydrated, these thin slices of dried black truffle regain the look and texture of a fresh mushroom. Their subtle taste can be enhanced with Favuzzi truffle salt.
Soak our dried truffles for 5 minutes in water, cream, milk or broth, then impress your guests by topping your pasta or risotto with these thin slices that will have regained the look of fresh truffles.
Our black truffles of the Tuber æstivum Vitt. variety, also called summer truffles, come from Italy's Abruzzo region. These rare mushrooms, difficult to cultivate, grow in the soil at the foot of some trees, such as oak trees and hazelnut trees. They are harvested with the help of dogs or pigs, who can locate them thanks to their keen sense of smell. Found only in Europe during a brief season, our truffles are finely sliced and dehydrated after they are picked, ensuring their availability year-round.
The De Laurentiis family owns an artisanal business in the Abruzzo mountain region. For two generations, it has been drawing on traditional ingredients and know-how to offer products with an authentically Italian taste. The family grows organic tomatoes, saffron and herbs on its own plots of land, and turns them into sauces and condiments thanks to a veritable regiment of cooks who busily tend the ovens.

The artisanal business Casina Rossa (red house in Italian) has been based in the Abruzzo mountains for two generations. The cooks prepare typically Italian specialties following their grandmothers’ methods, such as simmering tomato sauces over low heat. The company focuses on using the best local products and superior quality ingredients. The artisans’ talent and know-how are the reason Favuzzi chose them to make its branded tomato sauces and truffle olive oil.
