The day will begin with a coffee to set us up along with an explanation of what the day involves during & after the hunt. We will set out into my forest with Electra & Ghianda my truffle dogs who will be excited that we are going hunting. Along the way I will show you wild orchids, flowers & evidence of wildlife . If we are quiet we may see deer and black squirrels .
The dogs noses are 40 times more sensitive than ours and they will be searching & sniffing all the time.
When they find a truffle they will dig it out and you will be able to smell a fresh truffle, a unique experience.

We will look for truffles in the ground around Ramuse with my two truffle sister dogs Elektra and Ghianda. The hunt normally lasts about an hour, where you can participate directly in the truffle hunt. Then we will collect some fresh eggs from the chicken house and make some fresh handmade tagliatella.

The experience includes a lunch with a local appetiser, fresh pasta prepared together with fresh truffles, a dessert, coffee and a bottle of local organic classic sparkling wine.
