With a flavor as distinct as their smell, truffles are in high demand, and lucky for us, The Truffleist has got lots of them. Here, they took their black summer truffles and used them to infuse hand-mined sea salt, resulting in an unmatched eating experience. Instantly elevate any meal; from truffle fries to truffled pizza crust (seriously, try it!), to beautiful seared scallops topped with a sprinkle of truffle salt. This is how it's done.

The Truffleist

Queens, NY

The Truffleist creates artfully handcrafted truffle products at their headquarters in Long Island City, Queens. They offer the highest quality products, developed from masterfully curated truffle ingredients, allowing customers to create and enjoy exceptional and enticing dishes. While their truffles are imported from the countrysides of Italy, France and Spain, they proudly source many of their base ingredients locally from small farms and artisanal producers.

Truffleist founder, Jimmy Kunz, was fortunate enough to explore a medley of culinary experiences at a young age. Growing up in New York City, Jimmy earned an early appreciation of delicious, cravable dishes made up of the pristine classics and humble, culturally diverse cuisines his hometown has to offer. These food moments and memories imprinted on Jimmy, and motivated his commitment to creating remarkable experiences with those around him, communing through the sharing of mind-blowing food.

Jimmy began making truffle butter as a holiday gift for friends and family before he was inspired to take his passion to the next level by officially becoming The Truffleist. Like a modern-day version of the street cart vendors who walked a young New York City, Jimmy started out hand-delivering the product to his early customers, personally navigating the City streets by Vespa.

Since launching the company with that flagship truffle butter in 2013, The Truffleist now offers a growing selection of distinct truffle products, in addition to hosting a wildly successful seasonal market: Cheesesteaks by The Truffleist.
