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.

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a thing for truffles. Half of it must be their mystique and the other half – their incomparably subtle aroma and uniquely distinctive flavor. By definition, a truffle is a parasitic fungus that grows onto the roots of certain trees. They are fiendishly fussy about altitude, moisture, soil, foliage,... More

My partner and I were ready to be collected as arranged and then taken high into the hills above Trevi. There we enjoyed an early morning coffee before we started the adventure of walking the trees to find our own truffles, with the help of 3 truffling dogs and their owner, Lucca, a family member. We then enjoyed a feast... More

What an amazing day! My family and another family with whom we were vacationing with in Umbria spent the better part of a day at the farm. In total, we had four adults and four children (ages 6-8 years old). Everyone had an amazing time and we all agreed it was the best day of what was truly a wonderful... More

you don't have to be a foodie to enjoy a day in the Italian Hills with Mac, Francesca and the families in the village. Its a trip back in time to a different culture and lifestyle and a great learning adventure. The truffle hunting itself was fantastic, but the stories, local produce, dogs, sheep, cheese-making and tasting, pasta-making from an... More

We highly recommend this truffle hunting outing, pasta making demonstration and luncheon with Wild Foods Italy! Mack and Francesca were such warm hosts - we felt like we were part of the family. The drive up to their ranch is very steep and windy, so if you are at all concerned about the drive, take them up on their offer... More

Already when arriving you feel not only welcome but as a member of the family. You learn about truffle hunting, sheep herding, cheese making and how to make the best pasta. Everything in a beautiful environment in the Umbrian hills. The family answers friendly and openly all your questions. The event is completed by a long, relaxed, lovely lunch where... More

This was a terrific day, many thanks to Mack and Francesca for hosting us on this incredible adventure. The truffle hunt was a gas, the cooking class informative and interesting, and the food and wine: not to be missed! All in all, a great day and well worth it!! I couldn't recommend it more!!!

As a couple, along with 2 other couples, we enjoyed our full day experience with Mac, Francesca, Luca, Nonna Josepina and Nonno, Dante. It was a real intimate and personalized adventure. We felt totally immersed and welcomed into their home and simple beautiful way of life. Being a New Zealander, Mac's English made all the stories and explanation of it... More
