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.

Our favorite day in Italy was spent the Wild Foods clan. From enjoying the walk with Lucca and his dogs to uncover truffles, to watching Francesca craft the pasta, to the blissful enjoyment of lunch, everything about the day exceeded expectations. I had no idea how much I was craving the space, vistas, and quiet of the countryside. We will... More

What a wonderful day in Pettino with Mack, Francesca and Lucca. From truffle hunting, scrambled eggs with truffles and Prosecco, accompanied by the beautiful Maremma dogs, watching Francesca make pasta, and finally a magnificent lunch, including the pasta and truffle sauce. And how could I forget Marina, the pet pig - just adorable! Thank you Mack and Francesca for a... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Mack and his entire family made this a day to remember. Sorry Mack, you wife Francesca was the star with her cooking and Lucca was the best supporting player with his truffle hunting and scramble eggs. Not to mention your kids, all the dogs and cats. Your pig! And of course... More

When one of our holiday buddies suggested to go for a truffle hunt, I didn't really have much expectation. But boy was I really glad we went. As a person living in a city most his life, this was truly an experience. I don't want to give away too much on the highlights of the day, but anyone in Umbria... More

This was the highlight of our 2.5 weeks trip in Umbria. From summer black truffles hunting with Luca and Mac, prosecco, pecorino cheese, eggs with grated fresh truffles that we hunted were simple pleasure in life. This was coupled with a splendid view of a flock of sheep grazing the grasses with the lovely sheep dogs. They have an adorable... More

We had an amazing day with Mack, Lucca and Francesco in the most beautiful part of Umbria. The truffle hunt in the woods took us literally off the beaten track, as the dogs rummaged in the roots of oak trees and we strolled in dappled sunshine. Mack told us all about the seasonal local truffles as Lucca gathered I bianchetti,... More
