You savoured its strong aroma, you saw it on the tables served as one of the most precious delicacies,everyone likes its unique taste but… Finally you can take take part at the truffle hunting activity, an ancientUmbrian tradition.
Hunting, this is how we say talking about the search of this tuber (yes it is a tuber), because we need to look for it like a precious treasure. During the “hunting” an expert “cavatore” (this is how people looking for truffles are called) will give you some tips for the search, even though the biggest job is made from the dogs: the credit for the success belongs to them!
If you will be lucky and you will find few truffles, a dedicated cooking class could reveal the secrets and inspire the creation of special dishes made special by your truffle! What else…oh yes, now you can eat it…

The truffle hunting will end with a typical Umbrian lunch at a local organic farm-house during which you will taste some traditional recipes combined with a fine selection of wines in a convivial atmosphere !

Don't miss this special and memorable day!
