Our Commitments : Organic Truffles

Their story

Fadi Prestige truffles are the girls from the South! As true Mediterranean girls, they only come out in summer, when the weather is nice and warm! That's the reason why they are commonly called "summer truffle" (Tuber aestivum) or sometimes «Saint John’s Truffle".   The Saint John occurs on the summer solstice and is generally celebrated with traditional bonfires all around Europe. Summer truffles will start to grow in April and harvested in May until late September. They are good-looking truffles dressed in black and whose flesh – commonly called the “glebe” – ranges from whitish when immature, beige to brown and veiny when mature.   More importantly, they are very tasty! The summer truffle’s preferred soil is in Italy, where she is sought after for its unique "profumo", the Italian word for fragrance or perfume. Indeed, when it is ripe and ready, its fragrance is very intense, with notable hints of hazelnut and wild mushroom. It's considered a gourmet truffle. On the other side of the Alps, it is called the "scorzone" (which literally translates to "big bark") because of its rough and warty skin. The Italian summer truffle is mostly found in the regions of Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, and Abruzzo, where it grows in symbiosis with trees such as hazel, oak, beech, lime tree,… etc.   The truffles from Fadi Prestige precisely and strictly come from wild truffle patches, that is to say, they don’t come from an artificial plantation cultivated below oak trees and thus giving “farmed” truffles (which is the case of 9 out of 10 of the truffles you’ll usually find on the market), but instead they are harvested from a natural forest located in the Marche region— a protected environment away from agricultural lands.  Therefore, the subsoil of the forest doesn’t contain heavy metals, is free of any surrounding farms and therefore of any influence. The management of the truffle patch is conducted with the utmost respect of environment, and without harm towards the natural biodiversity of the forest. Pesticide, weedkiller and chemical products are strictly forbidden. The forest soil requires nothing but the care of nature, yet a small amount of quick-absorbable crushed limestone and Bordeaux mixture can be commonly used for organic agriculture. In fact, the micro-fauna (nowadays rarefied or lost in many forests) and the wide flora varieties testify of the above.   In confidence, it’s our truffle-sniffing dog, a Border Collier named Prune who does most of the job. She is in charge of the “truffle hunting” (the step of excavating the truffles from the ground) and thanks to her keen senses, she will smell all the nice spots! Let’s face it, her nose is the most precious here! Here at Fadi Prestige, we sell fresh truffles and other truffle-based products derived from certified organic agriculture. We also use them for the truffle sauce of our pizza!
