Surely it was only a matter of time before London’s most exclusive department store opened a lounge dedicated to gastronomy’s most expensive ingredient? Knightsbridge landmark Harrods has announced the launch of Italian truffle lounge Tartufi & Friends, on the lower ground floor of the world famous retailer.
Tartufi & Friends is ‘entirely dedicated to the world of the truffle’ serving everything from Fassone beef with quail eggs and fresh truffle, to Chianina beef burgers with foie gras, fresh truffle and truffle & mustard mayo, or ice cream with truffle honey to truffle Martinis. Packages including limited edition olive oil with white truffle, truffle infused chocolates, truffle honeys and truffle salts & condiments, will be available for diners to purchase.
You may think only London’s premier department store could support such luxurious food frippery, but you’d be wrong. The concept already has flagship sites in Milan and Rome, courtesy of the Sermoneta group.
