The truffle hunters have many dogs skillfully trained to sniff out the precious Umbrian truffles. It’s a pleasant stroll in some really lovely countryside, with plenty of time to enjoy the views and watch the dogs work. The dogs are always excited to be out truffle hunting and they are fun to be around as they come and go and hopefully bring us plenty of truffles.
Sometimes it’s surprisingly easy, other times quite a challenge, but we stroll until we have enough truffles for our big Umbrian lunch.
Being an everyday job here in Pettino we are very unpretentious about truffles and you might be surprised how many we can find. You’re welcome to smell them, touch them and of course you will eventually taste them.
