Surrounded by the nature, in the middle of the woods, all teams will try to find as much truffle as possible, everyone led by an expert truffle-hunter and his loyal dog.
Who will be the winner???? Weight, shape and perfume will be very important for the jury.
Truffles are one of those magical ingredients that cast a spell over dishes, turning ordinary pasta into exquisite creations, and transforming everyday omelettes or risottos.
But the thing is, they aren’t always easy to find. That’s why they sell for thousands of pounds per kilo. However, some areas of the world produce more truffles than others.
Emilia Romagna is one of the most popular places for Italy’s passionate truffle hunters, with the woods and hills of the region offering plenty of opportunities to snag a few of these highly sought-after mushrooms.
Although digging for truffles is a professional trade, it’s also great fun for amateurs and tourists. That’s why we’ve organised a package which includes an authentic truffle hunt in Emilia Romagna for visitors to enjoy.
When you head out into the forests, you’ll be accompanied by local experts who know the best places to look. And more importantly, you’ll be in the company of truffle hounds, whose noses know the way to these hard-to-find delicacies.
And, if you find a few truffles on your trip, you can take them to seasoned local chefs who will be delighted to demonstrate how to use them in real Italian cooking.
So, you won’t just have a down to earth, traditional experience, you’ll also have a culinary adventure.
