Truffle hunting with cooking class in Tuscany

Tasting and food

An immersive sensorial experience in the Chianti countryside

Are you ready for a one-of-a-kind adventure? Join Irene and her wonderful dog, Tep, for an unforgettable truffle hunting experience in the enchanting woods of Tuscany. Truffles are unique underground mushrooms that grow near certain trees, like oaks, poplars, willows, lindens, pines, and hazelnuts. Although Italy has over twenty-five species of truffles, only a few are edible and commercially valuable. The finest truffles are rare, and Tuscany's diverse environments allow for the growth of all edible species.

Discover, smell, and touch one of nature's most prized delicacies, including the highly sought-after white truffle (Tuber magnatum Pico) and other varieties such as the marzuolo, scorzone, hooked, precious black, and black winter truffles. Our expert licensed guide will lead you through forest paths, sharing stories and legends about the region and the ancient practice of truffle hunting. Learn to identify the trees under which truffles thrive, understand their ideal growing conditions, and gain insider tips on how to cook and store these gourmet treasures.

After the hunt, head to a delightful pasta school where you’ll learn to make fresh "tagliolini", under the guidance of skilled chefs. Mixing simple ingredients like flour and eggs, you will create the perfect pasta dough. Incorporate the freshly harvested truffles, either sliced thinly or made into a luxurious sauce, to complement your homemade "tagliolini".

The experience will end with a delightful lunch featuring the truffle "tagliolini" you crafted.

This adventure in Chianti offers a total immersion in the authentic culinary delights of the region, from the excitement of the truffle hunt to the satisfaction of enjoying a gourmet meal you helped create. Perfect for gastronomy enthusiasts, it combines a love of nature, tradition, and fine cuisine.

*Dress code: Suitable attire for walking in the woods is recommended.
