Think Sustainably

Our Tuscany truffle hunt and cooking class is a wonderful half-day tour focused on tuscan truffle.

You will start with an exciting truffle hunt, guided by a truffle expert and by the nose of his faithful dog. Once you have finished you’ll learn how to use truffle in the kitchen preparing a delicious 3-course lunch at an organic farm just a few km from Florence.

Tuscany truffle hunt and cooking class take place in the Mugello Valley near Florence.
This particular area of Tuscany is fortunate enough to produce a variety of truffles throughout the year. Thus there’s always a good chance of finding truffles in our selected areas.

The protagonist of the truffle hunting is certainly hte dog that patiently scoures the woods sniffing for truffles. We actually have a selection of 3 dogs: 2 lagotto (Luna and Pedro) and the springer spaniel Stella. Suddenly the dog begins to scratch the ground thus attracting the attention of his master. The truffle hunter instead with his “small hoe” delicately enlarges the little hole just indented by the dog. He then gently extracts the truffle from the ground and rewards the dog with a peace of sausage.

Cristian Borchi is the best choice for guests who want to enjoy and learn how to cook tasty dishes from the Mugello Valley and from Tuscany.
Besides his unquestionable cooking pedigree Mugello&Tuscany has chosen chef Cristian because he shares its mission of giving guests the most authentic sustainable cooking experience without overlooking quality and comfort.

Mugello&Tuscany has chosen an organic agritourism both for its beauty and for the passion of its owners, Raffaele and Ioana, who will make you feel at home.
