On our third visit to Force we decided to try something different and found Moreno on Tripadvisor. On a wet morning we met Moreno in Comunanza and headed into the hills "15 minutes" drive. Sometime later we reached the top of a hill and met the truffle hunter and his dog. I had pretty low expectations of a walk in the rain in the woods I have to say. How wrong could I be? Watching the truffle hunter and his dog work and find black truffles at irregular intervals on the walk was amazing. The highlight being a white truffle which even the poker faced hunter got excited about. We found maybe 5 black truffles and one half of a white one in less than an hour. Amazing! Moreno then said we would go to lunch on a Slo-Food farm near by "15 mins". Sometime later we reached the most beautiful farm and relaxed by walking around the kitchen garden as the host picked and snipped what turned out to be our lunch. Tempura Courgette flowers, meat anti pasti, linguine with the very black truffles we had found, pork and apricot medallion. All washed down with farm grown Montepulciano wine by the half litre. Without Moreno we would never have found such an amazing place, food or experience thank you so much it was unique.

Had the most amazing day hunting for truffles with Moreno, followed by the most delicious lunch at agriturismo la conca. We were ten people ranging from 64 to 25 and we all had a fantastic time. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Le Marche

We had a great morning last week, guided by Moreno as we followed the hunter and his dogs out from their farmhouse into the woods. It was the most perfect weather, a clear, warm autumnal morning and the countryside and views were beautiful. We all really enjoyed learning about truffles and watching the dogs at work. It wasn't long before we had collected a handful and could head off for lunch to taste them on delicious bruschetta and plates full of steaming hot pasta! Thank you Moreno, for being a wonderful host and for giving us such an insight into this local speciality and the world of truffles!

My husband & I were travelling the East Mediterranean & Ascoli Piceno, Le Marche region in celebration of our 40th Wedding Anniversary. It was a most incredible & wonderful trip. Our last week was spent with Moreno, to explore this part of Italy. It was more then we could've dreamed. Moreno was totally organized & all the planned activities lived up to all we hoped for. Absolutely, the truffle hunting day experience with Moreno, Spina (Truffle hunting Dog) & owner Giovanni, was the "Star Winner", of the week!! I even gave Giovanni a big 'ol Canadian hug, in appreciation of our fantastic day!! "Memories Spent With Moreno", of Le Marche Region, will be in our heart & spirit forever. Loved, Loved it!!
