TRUFFLE HUNT NEAR FLORENCE is a Wonderful shared tour, focussed on Tuscan truffles.
You will live a really exciting truffle hunt near Florence. You will be guided by an expert truffle hunter and by the nose of his faithful dogs.
The truffle hunt near Florence will take place in the Mugello Valley. This particular area of Tuscany is fortunate enough to produce a variety of truffles throughout the year. So there’s always a good chance of finding these blessed natural treasures.
HOW THE TRUFFLE HUNT NEAR FLORENCE WORKS
The truffle hunt takes place around a farmhouse near Borgo San Lorenzo (Mugello Valley). Here you will meet your expert truffle hunter who will teach you all the secrets about truffles and truffle hunting.
After a short briefing you will be involved in a charming walk in the “Tartufaia woodland” with our special trained truffle dogs Stella and Asia.
During the truffle hunting session you will discover how to associate specific truffles to different shrubs and trees, how to recognise sound truffles from overriped ones etc.
When your truffle hunt near Florence is over you will enjoy a delicious lunch in a beautiful Mugello Valley farmhouse.
Depending on the season and weather conditions lunch will be served in 2 distinct ways. Either inside a beautiful Tuscan rustic hall by the fireplace or outdoors under a lovely porch overlooking an olive grove. The truffle lunch is an excellent cultural and culinary experience by itself. So you can just book your typical Tuscan farmhouse truffle lunch without truffle hunting.
Truffle hunter starters : 3 truffle crostini (truffle lard and beans, truffle and cheese, chicken liver patè with truffle). Then salami and truffle cheese
First course – Truffle tortelli (butter and fresh truffle) as an alternative: Tortelli with wild boar sauce.
