“Grandfather Antonio hunted for truffles in the second half of the nineteenth century. He handed down his passion to his grandchildren and great‐grandchildren. This passion for gathering the truffles and creating genuine products with real flavors continues to this day.” This velvety blend of truffles and honey is earthy, rich, warm and very sexy. I discovered it at Ristoro di Lamole, a wonderful restaurant in the tiny village of Lamole in Tuscany. We will never forget our first taste. Nor will you.”
