However your prepare them, truffles – one of the rarest and delectable foods – are always good. Thanks to TAOLS, you will participate in a truffle hunt in the woods of San Miniato. You will be helped in the hunt by the extraordinary sense of smell of a Lagotto Romagnolo, an expert truffle dog. During this singular excursion, our local guides will tell you all about the local truffle-hunting tradition, sharing anecdotes and secrets. After the hunt in the woods, you can learn how to cook with the mythic truffle, making a pasta sauce and delicious appetizers or, if you prefer, you can simply taste them accompanied by fine local wines. In the afternoon, in order to sample other local specialities, like the traditional salamis of an old butcher’s shop or the artisanal sweets and biscuits of a historic bakery, you will visit the ancient medieval village of San Miniato.
