Tartufi Le Ife
Enjoy the taste of authentic Italian truffles at home with Tartufi Le Ife!
Strictly speaking, a truffle is a fungus. They are usually found near tree roots and this is where the refined sense of smell of dogs comes in hand. These incredible dogs are trained to locate truffles underground and are the most loyal companions in this modern treasure hunt - and truffles are really a buried treasure when you consider their value: the largest truffle in the world was sold for $61,000 at a Sotheby’s auction in 2014.
There is a reason why truffles are so expensive though: to this day they are a wild product, not something you can cultivate or control, and finding them requires highly skilled and trained dogs.
Let’s meet Tartufi Le Ife!
