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.
We take you to our magical mountain village, nestled among the beautiful rolling hills and valleys of our farm, where our family have been hunting truffles for generations unknown. With our expert truffle hunter we comb the truffle-rich forests and pastures, following his expert dogs as they hunt.
There are amazing views to be had in every direction as we stroll the countryside. When we have enough truffles for lunch, we stop in a really panoramic spot and have our first taste of a freshly dug truffle paired, of course, with excellent wine.
Back at the family farmhouse we discover the secrets of a family culinary tradition. Nonna (Grandma) accompanies us to the pasta room where we learn to make fresh pasta and other local delicacies. We also indulge in an assortment of home-made specialties and great local wine. Then we sit down to a big traditional Umbrian mountain lunch where all our recipes have a ‘wild’ flavor: maybe wild boar stew, roast guinea fowl, stuffed duck or rabbit. Family and friends from the village join us for a relaxing, fun and totally authentic lunch.
It’s a great experience for people interested in food and wine, who want to experience some authentic Italian culture and hospitality, or who just want to spend a day soaking up the local atmosphere over a glass of wine. The Wild Foods Gastronomical Adventure is great for families, young and old, men and women!
It’s also an easy DAY TRIP FROM ROME and a great way to escape the big city for a day. CLICK HERE for more information.
