Gourmet Attitude, importer of truffles, opened its doors in Manhattan in April 2003. Céline Labaune, who emigrated to the United States from her native south of France in 1995, is the founder of the company.
New York City was good enough to Céline that she could earn a degree in business and start a family. Along the way she has constantly worked in the fine food industry, branching out on her own to form Gourmet Attitude to indulge and further her passion for truffles. Over the years, she has greatly enjoyed sharing with the American gourmet market her interest in this delicacy and the mystery and legends surrounding it. George Sand’s “Pomme Féerique” is one of her favorites, and she recommends it to all who share her romance with the “fruit of the earth”.
Since the beginning, her leit-motiv has been quality, care and respect for the products she imports and excellent service to the clients she serves. Céline has spent significant time traveling abroad, forever seeking the best suppliers, and always trying to deal with small producers. Thanks to this dedication, Gourmet Attitude has grown and expanded over the years, without losing any of its personal touch. We are now importing all year long fresh, preserved and frozen truffles from across Europe all year long and distributing to the finest establishments throughout the country including French Laundry, Per Se, Daniel, Alinea, Masa…always keeping in mind that the only thing that matters is quality.
Voila! And thank you for letting us share our love for truffles with you!
