HIGHLIGHTS

  • For this absolutely exclusive and private experience you’ll be received by an expert truffle hunter (English speaking…) in a classic ancient Tuscan farmhouse on the green hills of Palaia (near Pisa) immersed in 30 hectares of centuries-old woods with natural truffle grounds where your truffle hunting will take place.
  • The warm and welcoming rustic Tuscan environment, with fireplace and open kitchen, is the setting for your lesson on the world of truffles and lunch (for those who have more time, in this “extended” version of experience, even of the cooking class).
  • From here we move on a walk to the most suitable wood according to the season (if in summer in search of the “scorzone” truffle, in the pine forest for the search for “bianchetto”, or further downstream for the search for “fine white” ).
  • On your return you will have your cooking class led by our Chef on the basic secrets of truffle dishes, then a special LUNCH that enhances what we found in the woods and exploits the things learned in the kitchen.
  • MENU: Aperitif based on our truffle products – Pasta fresh truffle and fresh truffle – Egg with truffle – Truffle dessert – All paired with local wines which, according to our experience of several generations, perfectly go with these dishes.
    Duration of this “extended” version of the experience: 5 hours.
    NOTE: if you have less time you can try the “compact” version of this experience
