Domenica Bertolusso and Beppe Montanaro, founders of the company, started their experience in the “truffle world” in 1968, marketing the fresh truffle from the Piedmont region.
During that period, their restaurant “Da Beppe”, located in the heart of Alba, was considered a landmark by truffle and mushrooms lovers and by the Michelin guide. Tartuflanghe was born in 1980 to make use of Beppe’s experience and creativity, built through a prestigious formative experience: he was a “Chef Soucier” on cruise ships from 1958 to 1966, a teacher in Culinary Institute, a chef in the best restaurants of Piedmont cooking and then owner of the famous restaurant. The company’s name derives from an intuition of Domenica and her chef, in the kitchen of Beppe’s restaurant: they joined the Italian word for “truffle” with the name of the origin territory of this precious tuber, the Langhe area.
In the last years, Stefania and Paolo joined their parents in the management of the firm and they have inherited Domenica and Beppe’s experience, bringing enthusiastically new ideas to the prestigious family tradition.
Since many years the company is proud holder of the “Eccellenza Artigiana” (Artisan Excellence title), awarded by Piedmont Region for its thirty-year experience in the culinary world.
