This is an authentic truffle hunt in the beautiful Umbrian hills, an unforgettable culinary experience, a day spent in the company of colorful locals, a stroll through some stunning countryside… the Wild Foods Gastronomical Adventure is a piece of Italy you will never forget. Spend a day immersed in authentic traditional Italian company, culture and cuisine.
You will be taken to a magical mountain village, nestled among the beautiful rolling hills and valleys of the family farm, where they have been hunting truffles for generations. With an expert truffle hunter you will comb the truffle-rich forests and pastures, following the hunter’s expert dogs as they hunt.
There are amazing views to be had in every direction. When you have collected enough truffles, there’s time to stop in a really panoramic spot and have the first taste of a freshly dug truffle paired, of course, with excellent wines.
Back at the family farmhouse discover the secrets of a family culinary tradition. Nonna (Grandma) takes us to the pasta room where we learn to make fresh pasta and other local delicacies. Also indulge in an assortment of home-made specialties and great local wine. Then sit down to a big traditional Umbrian mountain meal where all the recipes have a ‘wild’ flavor: maybe wild boar stew, roast guinea fowl, stuffed duck or rabbit. Family and friends from the village join in for a relaxing, fun and totally authentic dinner.
