Food lovers & Truffle enthusiasts tour in TUSCANY

The TRUFFLE ACADEMY in Tuscany Truffle HUNTING & COOKING – Masterclass version

Received by an expert truffle hunter in a classic ancient Tuscan farmhouse on the green hills near Pisa, immersed in 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 with cooking class.

We’ll move on a walk to the most suitable wood according to the season (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 return cooking class is led by our Chef on the secrets of truffle dishes, then a special truffle based lunch that enhances what we found in the woods and exploits the things learned in the kitchen: truffle aperitif, fresh truffle pasta with fresh truffle, truffle egg, truffle dessert.

All paired with local TOP wines, according to our experience of several generations.
