I spent a week on holiday in the Langhe in June, in a week we visited many beautiful cities like Asti, Alba and Turin. Also on the weekend we booked for a wine tour in Barolo and on Sunday we tried the wonderful truffle hunting experience, we tasted typical Piedmontese dishes based on white and black truffles. Experience to try !!
I am passionate about black and white truffles, I love the taste and all the dishes that are prepared with truffles. Every year I travel to Italy to buy the best truffles, this year I booked the truffle hunting tour Barolo and it was a lot of fun and I learned many things about truffles. I already knew where to buy truffles and the price of white truffles, now I have discovered where they grow, where to find them and how to eat them. Fantastic!
