In the search of the real Truffle, The Truffle Hunters

The locals in Marche, Italy have been eating truffles since they were children… long before they were a prized posession in most of the world. Now the region (the truffle center of Italy) is dotted with hidden spots that trained truffle hunters and their dogs traverse each year. We spent a day with a truffle hunter, his dog, and his dealer.

Culinary truffles

When most people think of magic truffles, they think of the culinary delicacy on the menu in a lot of restaurants. The culinary truffle is an expensive good. It grows underground, at the roots of different trees. To get an idea of how expensive a culinary truffle can be: In 2007 a white truffle was sold for $ 330,000!

Magic truffles

The magic truffle is an affordable truffle. The magic truffle grows on the roots of the mushrooms that have the active ingredient psilocybin. That’s a big difference between both truffles. Someone who eats a dish where the culinary truffle is processed in, won’t suddenly perceive the world around them differently.

Our highly potent magic truffles taste really good, are cheap and give you an amazing experience. That’s a whole lot different than the culinary truffles 😀
