Hunting Truffles in Le Marche
Next available date: 19th - 20th May 2017
Experience the true flavour of rural life by going on a truffle hunt (tartufo in Italian). Be prepared to get your shoes dirty on this amazing first-hand experience where you will spend part of the morning on a private estate with the hunter and his dog as they weave their way through the woods in search of truffles.
You’ll know when you’re onto something as the hound will start getting excited - sniffing, circling, sniffing some more and then digging. The truffles, found using a method that has barely changed over the centuries, grow buried under the soil of specific trees with specific soils, precise weather conditions and five to 15 years of maturation.
Once the truffles are gathered you’ll take part in a cooking class based around the truffles you have found before sitting down to enjoy a mouth-watering truffle-filled lunch created by you.
