Despite multiple attempts to cultivate truffles, the first fruitful plantations appeared at the end of the 19th century, but it was not until the 20th century that good results were obtained and the life cycle of the truffle began to be studied. as well as the ability to differentiate its species.
On the occasion of the universal exhibition held in Paris in 1855, the black truffle became known worldwide and its excellent culinary properties began to be promoted.
Only the nobility and kitchens of high power were able to include it in their recipes. They were served at the tables of the most refined diners of the time.
In later centuries it was also given healing properties, especially as an antidote against gout and an effective antibiotic.
