Project Description

Unestablished historical sources attribute the discovery of the truffle to the Babylonians, in 3000 a. C., having probably come across the type of truffle that still grows today in the sandy lands of Asia Minor, the Terfezia Leonis.The first to use the truffle seems to have been Jacob in 1600 BC.

The irregular shape was reminiscent of the precious Piedmontese mushroom, and here is the name: truffle. In this case it is obviously the declination in chocolate format, with a heart of chocolate and cream, covered with cocoa powder, still known today as a French variant of this dessert.
