Years of Participation

Edward Crouse has spent a decade of his professional life working with some of the top performing companies in the food and beverage industry, companies like Whole Foods Market, Thomas Keller Restaurant Group, and Mikuni Wild Harvest. It was working for Mikuni Wild Harvest, a wild foods distributor in New York City, that he discovered the profound experience of buying, selling, serving and eating fresh truffles.  Supplying chefs all over the city with white and black truffles hooked him for life.  He moved to Northern Italy to be closer to the source of the White Alba Truffle, this is where he met his wife, Marie Stitt, who is from...Charleston, SC.  They moved back to Charleston and now own and operate an old world café on Cannon Street styled after the neighborhood bars of Europe.
