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. You spend a day immersed in authentic traditional Italian company, culture and cuisine. You hunt truffles, cook truffles, eat truffles, as well as get to experience an amazing part of Italy far away from the usual tourist trails. You also experience some traditional 'wild' cuisine, maybe wild boar stew, sauteed hare, or roast guinea fowl. It's great for foodies and wine-lovers, or for anyone just wanting to immerse themselves in the landscape, people and culture of Umbria.

So awesome, went on a family vacation in April of 2013 (yes review is really late, but I just remembered bc we are heading back to Italy). Everything about it was just awesome, Mac and his family were incredibly hospitable and kind. If you are looking for a truly unique non-touristy experience, get on board with Mac.

All the wonderful reviews of this activity are totally true! We spent the day with Mac, Francesca, and their wonderful extended family on the day after Easter. We loved the fact that a driver was sent to deliver us to the mountain location and return us home. The family embraced us like friends and shared fascinating insights into their lives... More

This was the absolute highlight of our 3 month trip to Europe. Mac and his family were delightful. They hosted us on a truly authentic adventure of Italian truffle hunting, food and wine. We would highly recommend this experience. Looking forward to our next visit! Lucy and Sam

Francesca and Mac, along with their children, parents, cousins, uncles, dogs and sheep showed us what life is like in a rural Italian village. We were welcomed as family, invited to follow along and learn about truffle hunting, making pasta from scratch, toasting bread over a wood-burning grill, herding sheep, making cheese and just about any other work that fills...

The undisputed highlight of our 2014 trip to Italy was the truffle hunt in the Village of Pettino. Mac, Franchesca and their extended family were gracious, accommodating, and more than willing to go out of their way to make sure he had a great time...............and we DID!!! Searching out truffles was left up to three Brittany Spaniels with more energy... More

I spent three weeks in Italy. The planned trip to watch dogs hunt for truffles was not at the top of my list of things to see and do. It should have been! It was by far the best day of my trip. What an amazing experience. Eating freshly made scrambled eggs with the truffles the dogs just found, with... More

Since discovering and falling in love with truffles two years ago in Italy when my husband and I returned to Italy for our honeymoon I started to research into going on a truffle hunt and found Wild Foods. The day was so much more than we could ever have imagined and was an absolute highlight of our honeymoon. A must... More

This rates as our best experience in three European trips. Starting from a sceptical "what's this truffle hunting nonsense" position, I was soon eating the most delicious fresh truffle humble pie you could imagine. Our host Mac and extended family provided a wonderful experience in rural Umbria. The truffle hunt was brilliant followed by shaved truffle on scrambled eggs with... More
