EUGENIO BREZZI TARTUFI & C.
| || |
The land of Tuscany has seen many mythical and contradictory figures like the robber, the poacher and the wood cutter, but there were also those, who, like the very first men, simply went in search of the fruits of the forest; those who collected snails, picked mushrooms and searched for truffles.
About 70 years ago, aided by a dog, Eugenio Brezzi set off to track down an underground mushroom; compact and fleshy whose intoxicating fragrance and exquisite flavour had led the ancient Greeks to believe that it was created when each peal of thunder discharged its energy onto the earth.
These were the years immediately after the war when the forest represented, as it still does, shelter, a refuge and even sustenance.
Thus, for pleasure and necessity, Eugenio began his search for truffles, going on to build up his very own family business for the processing of truffles and the manufacture of truffle products. The small firm grew rapidly, making a name for itself internationally.
Today, in the best restaurants and gourmet shops all over the world Eugenio’s old pastime can be found transformed into a wide variety of products – simple, genuine and natural products which tickle and satisfy the most sensitive palates evoking the fragrance of the forest, the magical sight of black and white tubers and the excitement of the man who found them and started to collect them.
The Brezzi firm is the main producer of truffle puré and a leader today of its kind.
It supplies its customers with highly selected products; genuine products, naturally preserved without the use of artificial colorants, anti-fermenting agents and above all without the use of artificial flavourings.
The firm can deliver fresh or preserved truffles to any part of the world.
