In Search Of The Truffle

Overview

It is said that tastes differ. This is true for most things including
in the world of cuisine and the rich world of flavors. Different
opinions are predominant here, but chefs agree on one thing
- the truffle is the peak of gastronomy. Much appreciated, this
odd mushroom, hidden underground and with no plant above
ground, is very hard to fi nd. Only a specially trained dog can
sniff it out. Truffles grow in gray soil, and in Istria its main
area is in the damp Motovun forest in the valley of the River
Mirna. And this is where we will search for the majestic truffle,
accompanied by a truffler and his specially trained dogs.
During the two-hour walk in the woods, the truffler will tell
us all the details and secrets of truffles. Enjoy specialties with
this mysterious fungus which we will complement with other
delicacies, as well as exquisite wines and olive oil in a charming
symphony of flavors.
