“The black diamond of french gastronomy”
Black gold, black diamond or pearl : nothing could be too beautiful to evoke, describe or encapsulated the myriad subleties of the truffle, that precious fruiting fungus that inspired comparison with the finest gems for centuries. All that was lacking was a jeweller and its custom showcase.
Thus was born Maison de la Truffe in 1932, the jeweller providing this culinary diamond to the most delicate palates in France and abroad, offering multiple varieties of truffles and truffle products.
Brokers are the people on whom the sale of truffled, or « rabasse » in the local dialect, depends. They act as intermediaries between truffle finers and packers/retailers, who visit the markets to identify the best truffles, thanks to their experience and ancestral know-how.
It was this know-how and experience on the ground that enabled Maison de la Truffe to instantly establish itself as a luxury reference for quality ; its shop on Place de la Madeleine has since become a meeting place for gourmets.
In 1978, Guy Monier, a chef by trade, took over the house and pursued its development by creating a tasting area and by transforming Maison de la Truffe into a veritable luxury food shop.
Taken by the Kaspia Group, Maison de la Truffe accelerate its development harmoniously by combining tradition and creativity.
Opening a second restaurant and boutique in Paris. Opening a corner shop in Germany. Opening a restaurant in Brussels.
At the end of 2013, Maison de la Truffe opened a third address, a luxury corner dedicated to the most precious tubers, in Le Chabichou, a 4 Michelin Stars Hotel and Restaurant, in Courchevel.
Today, the family business has become a key location for the most demanding truffle enthusiats, as well as for amateur gourmets wishing to discover this fine gastronomic jewel through a variety of quality products created for the enjoyment of the subtlety of the truffle in all its possible forms.
