What you'll do

Ready to jump into the Tuscan’s hills?!Perfetto!!
From my house in the heart of Mugello area and guided by Lupo, my fun and active cocker spaniel, we will walk into the tuscan’s woods looking for the most precious of the all gift that the nature can give us: Truffle!
Yes exactly, along with Lupo we will Truffle Hunt in the heart of Tuscany.

Specifically we will hunt the “Tuber Borchii Vittadini or Tuber Albidum” known as Whitish Truffle o Bianchetto Truffle.

I will take you to my secret spots to find as many as we can, if we find them!
Once we are done hunting, we will come back to my house and we will cook together a 3 courses meal, all with Truffle.
Also we will make pasta or gnocchi or Risotto with my grandma’s centenary recipes with truffle.

The menu changes according to the season and the fresh products that I have available in the farm or in the local organic farm around me.
I truly believe in the “farm to table” concept and that’s what you will find here.

Truffle hunting and extraction in Italy has been recently recognised as an Intangible Cultural Heritage: come and join us in this great, fun and wonderful adventure, part of the Italian history.

My old grandparents country house is located about 1 hour driving from Florence and 15 minutes from Dicomano.
Dicomano can be easily reached by train with a beautiful and quite journey from Florence train station. There, I'll come and pick you up or we can arrange another meeting point according to the way you are travelling with.
We will walk in the Tuscan woods and after that we will have a delicious lunch in my country house

    This was an experience I will treasure forever. Thank you Giacomo and Lupo for such a wholesome, unique, informative and memorable day. I am so grateful to have found this. To be able to spend a day in the countryside of Tuscany, learn about its trees, soils and truffles, and prepare and share a beautiful meal with others is travelling at its most perfect. Grazie mille!

    We had the best day with Giacomo! We are not typically “outdoor types” but we really wanted to have the experience of truffle hunting. He made the hike attainable for us and even carried my 5 year old daughter on his back when she got tired. The lunch he made was so delicious and we had lots of fun learning more about the truffles and Giacomo over a shared meal. I highly recommend this experience!! Thank you Giacomo and Lupo!

    Giacomo is an excellent host. He created a fantastic experience that includes outdoor truffle hunting and indoor cooking. I enjoyed every aspect of my experience and felt I also learned something meaningful about truffle and Italian food. He is also very thoughtful to meet me at the old town and showed me the way up to his place. Highly recommended this experience!

    Giacomo & Lupo were so welcoming and fun! Their bond was obvious from the second we arrived at Giacomo’s lovely home. Lupo found us two truffles - one was a bit expired- but nonetheless it was great to find truffles in a season where weather has not been very accommodating! After our hunt Giacomo taught us how to make a traditional Italian lunch of focaccia, ricotta gnocchi, and chocolate mousse- all with truffle, of course! We were fortunate to have beautiful weather, so all cooking and eating was done outside. Giacomo’s English is perfect and he was a very kind and interesting host who is incredibly talented in the kitchen! Highly recommend this experience!

    Wonderful truffling and cooking experience in the countryside. Giacomo is a brilliant and very welcoming host and a fantastic cook and Lupo is the goodest boy. Could not recommend any more highly!
