The Truffle, Tartufo in Italian, has been known for centuries as a precious culinary delicacy throughout the world. This rare and dainty mushroom was known to be part of the diet of populations dating back to 1600 BC.
In ancient times the truffle was considered food of gods, rich in aphrodisiac powers and unique flavors
Cooking with truffle is something deeply rooted in the Italian culinary tradition, especially within Tuscany. This region offers the perfect conditions for some of the world’s most delicate & rare truffles to grow. The role of the Tartufaio and his loyal dog, take on the ancient rite, considered a secret art of hunting truffles each year.
Truffles, unlike other mushrooms, grow underground making the role of harvesting that much more unique & difficult.
At Toscana Divino, one of the best restaurants in Brickell, we honor our region’s traditions by sourcing some of the finest white truffles to curate select dishes available to our guests for an exclusive period of time or till the truffle runs out.
Our Executive Chef carefully selected this very rare white Alba-truffle, best known for it’s aroma. When paired with meats, pasta, and cheeses it evokes musky and earthy flavors with notes of garlic, honey, and butter. These wonders of nature are considered to be some of the most luxurious food in the world.
