What you'll do

My family, my dog, Billo ,and I will guide you in truffle hunting in our beautiful woods in Chianti. Truffle hunting is an ancient tradition in Tuscany, and has only one rule—respect nature. For this reason, it will be necessary to conduct a small briefing before going into the woods, a sacred place for truffle hunters. During the hunt, I will tell you about the truffle, the magic of its traditions, its history, mythology, and uses in the kitchen. You will learn how to recognize and distinguish a good truffle from other fake "truffles" of inferior quality. After the hunt, we will return home for a scheduled lunch or dinner, based on fresh, real truffles and served with our own wine and extra virgin olive oil. We will show you how to clean truffles and prepare typical truffle recipes, such as crostini al tartufo, tagliatelle al tartufo, and more.

My family was born here in Chianti, and we have always appreciated truffles—the treasures of this land. I love to cook, and my husband is an expert winemaker. My son, Edoardo, is a composer, and his grandfather, Giuseppe, is a professional truffle hunter and member of the Tuscan Truffle Hunters Association. My husband and I will prepare the food and wine, and Edoardo and Giuseppe will show you how to find truffles in our woods.
