Go truffle hunting on our new cooking holiday in Tuscany

When Chef Fabrizio contacted us the other day to say he had a new cooking holiday, we knew it would be a good one.

Based near the Tuscan town of Arezzo, Fabrizio continues to impress guests with his Tuscan cooking and culture holidays but this new one has something that makes it extra special…

The five Ws

What? Truffle hunting and cookery holiday

Who? Chef Fabrizio

Where? Arezzo, Tuscany in Italy

When? from March to November (excluding July and August as truffle hunting is off limits by law!)

Why? Go foraging in the forest with an expert guide and dog to find the highly sought after truffle.

This new 3 night holiday is a great way to experience Tuscan culture as you gain or improve your cooking skills. Included in the itinerary are guided tours of Arezzo and the Tiberina Valley, as well as the chance to learn all about truffles and how they are found when you head out for a woodland walk with your guide and trained dog to forage for this highly prized ingredient.

Once back at the farm, head to the kitchen where Chef Fabrizio will lead you through hands-on cookery lessons where you will prepare, and then eat, truffle inspired recipes based on traditional Italian cuisine. Is your mouth watering too?
