We love that Italian truffles are uniquely delicious with their heady aromas and sublime delicate flavours, and – despite their flamboyance – so simple to use. We also know that these seasonal perfumed treasures are elusive, their woody locations a closely guarded secret that the best truffle hunters inherit generation after generation.
It became our mission to make truffles readily available whether you lived in London, Stockholm or Singapore following the opening of our Italian restaurant in 1987. We recognised how difficult it was for our fellow restaurateurs and chefs to receive a seasonal supply of premium truffles, whilst for our guests and their families, it was nearly impossible to buy truffles to recreate flavours remembered from a holiday in Italy. Our company L’Aquila was born, a company run by foodies to source select ingredients for foodies.
Our Anglo-Italian heritage gave us the necessary language, appreciation and understanding of Italian food culture to forge trusted relationships with truffle hunters and unravel the myths associated with buying truffles. We created a base in Umbria, by-passed brokers and through our regular orders were able to secure lower prices for the pick of Italy’s truffles whilst developing a range of innovative truffle products.
Our guaranteed supply of the freshest truffles, truffle oils, truffle sauces, and foods like truffle cheese and butter has attracted the best UK’s department stores, chefs and high-end delis. We now invite you to order online from our range of freshly un-earthed truffles, hampers and cook’s choice truffle range; all fresh truffle products are shipped securely the same day as our hunters dig them up to ensure their freshness upon their arrival next day within Europe, and fastest available delivery worldwide.
