Truffle hunt + cooking class

5 hours experience including a 3 hours cooking class (hands-on with our executive chef as the tutor) and a 2 hours real truffle hunt.

What we offer you is the final experience for food lovers in Italy. You’ll meet your chef in the Roddi Castle, where your cooking school is, and know him while drinking a perfect espresso (just “coffee” in Italy!).

When everything will be ready, you’ll head towards the kitchen, attend a hands-on cooking class with your chef (a close friend of yours by that time!) and you’ll taste everything that will be cooked. If you like you can add a wine pairing to match your plates.

To follow you and the chef will go together for a truffle hunt:a unique, unforgettable and pleasant experience. You will be taken to the woods of the Langhe area where you will have the opportunity to experience the true hunt of the precious truffle with the Chef and a Trifolao (a real truffle hunter).

A full immersion to discover from the inside the real local Italian culinary culture!

The meeting is at 10.45 a.m. at Terra, Castello di Roddi, Via Carlo Alberto, 15 Roddi, 12060 Roddi (CN)
