Truffle hunting in Tuscany consists of a walk in the woods for about two hours, during which you will accompany the dog to sniff near the bushes or plant roots. It will be him to show you where the truffles are.
When the dog finally begins to sniff eagerly and dig in the ground, you can continue digging to extract the truffle from the ground, very carefully and gently
At the end of the two hours of hunting you can return to the starting point with a nice booty and with a wide knowledge of truffle hunting. Furthermore, your “trifolao” will be happy to advise you on how to eat truffles.
