As some of you might know, Transylvania (and the area around Cund) is home to a great deal of special mushrooms and we are finding a surprisingly number of excellent truffles.
Apart from serving these delicacies in our restaurant, we have also started to sell fresh truffles (subject to availability) and a small range of products made from „our“ truffles here in Transylvania. The products are send to a specialist workshop in Alba – right in the heart of Italy´s famous truffle region. There, these excellent products are made and reimported to Transylvania, because Food&Safety regulations make processing them in Romania sadly too difficult…
The small pastes and the oil make great souvenirs and are truly delicious! If you need any inspiration for truffle recipes, please don´t hesitate to ask Jonas or one of the cooks in the Valea Verde Kitchen!
