Overview

Truffle hunting 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.

A fantastic experience. Truffle hunting with hounds, prosseco amongst the Maraema sheep dogs, pasta making, wild boar and pecorino cheese making with Mark and Franchesca plus the wild cousins Lucca and Alessandro. What wonderful hosts, nothing missing in a perfect day.
