Truffle-Hunting Animals

Truffles, buried underground, elude human detection. Therefore, truffle hunters, called "caveurs," inevitably have to partner with a companion possessing a highly developed sense of smell, typically a trained pig or dog. A third actor, the fly, also plays a role in the truffle detection and search process.

Maison Balme: A Passion Passed Down Through Generations

The genesis of Maison Balme is rooted in a family passion for truffles, dating back more than a century in Vaucluse and passed down through generations among truffle growers.

In 2013, Thomas Balme, the bearer of this heritage, shared this passion with his Basque friend, Mikel Poueyts, and gave birth to Maison Balme. Their goal: to unite the gastronomic riches of their respective regions and make truffles accessible to everyone. Over the years, these two accomplices gathered around them epicurean producers, all passionate about their terroirs and food quality. From artisanal charcuterie in Biarritz to biscuit-making in Bidart, and a house specializing in duck and poultry in the Landes, each partner contributed to creating a diverse range of delights.

Not to mention Uncle Géo Balme, a true truffle expert, who traveled across France in search of the best varieties. Thus, Maison Balme embodies an ode to gastronomic tradition, conviviality, and the discovery of authentic flavors.
