A walking on a hill in Umbria and a cooking class in a farm with locals
Enjoy views, nature, wild and good food with locals and. . . their funny little dogs trained for truffle hunting.
THIS TOUR HAS BEEN THOUGHT FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO LIKE TRUFFLES. UMBRIA IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT REGIONS IN ITALY FOR TRUFFLE PRODUCTION
Our truffle hunting tours will take you to hunt this famous local product of Umbria. Me and a truffle hunter will show you how to find truffles walking through the woods, how to use them in the best way, giving all the secrets, and furthermore how to cook and enjoy them.
To do a truffle hunt is a unique experience for blending good food, traditions and contact with locals.
It will start in the morning at a farm. From there together with a truffle hunter we will enjoy a walk in a wood with trained dogs hunting the so called black diamond of Umbria, truffle.
At the end of our walking we will go back to the farm where we will make home made pasta - tagliatelle - to get dressed with your truffle. We will also see and practice how to make home made cheese and then of course we will taste everything for lunch.
