A bit of history...
Domenica Bertolusso and Beppe Montanaro, founders of the company, started their experience in the “truffle world” in 1968, marketing the fresh truffle from the Piedmont region.
Tartuflanghe was born in 1980 to exploit Beppe’s experience and creativity, built through a prestigious formative experience: he was a “Chef Soucier” on cruise ships from 1958 to 1966, a teacher in a Culinary Institute, a chef in the best piemontese restaurants and then owner of his famous restaurant. The company’s name derives from an intuition that Domenica had: she joined the Italian word for “truffle” with the name of the original territory of this precious tuber, the Langhe area.
The first specialties with truffle were created to give people the opportunity of also tasting the truffle when not in season.
In the last years, Stefania and Paolo joined their parents in the management of the firm and they have inherited Domenica and Beppe’s experience, enthusiastically bringing new ideas to the prestigious family tradition.
For many years the company is proud holder of the “Eccellenza Artigiana” (Artisan Excellence title), awarded by the Piedmont Region for its thirty-year experience in the culinary world.
