Truffles, or aromatic mushrooms, are often referred to as the “diamonds of the kitchen” and regarded as one of the most celebrated ingredients in authentic Italian cucinas. Since Italy is home to some of the rarest truffle mushrooms, it’s a prized ingredient in many Italian dishes, including gnocchi or tagliarini with truffles. At Giolitti’s Delicatessen and Marketplace, we carry truffle staples that can transform any dish into a gourmet culinary experience within your home. From black truffle salt to rich truffle butter and white truffle oil, distinct truffle cheeses, and porcini/truffle ravioli — we’ve got a wide variety of gourmet specialties available for purchase.
