During autumn/fall in Tuscany the restaurant menus will be full of dishes featuring freshly picked truffles. The truffle grows symbiotically with oak, hazel, poplar and beech trees. Finding these goodies are not easy though and it is done with the help of a specially trained truffle dog that finds them for the happy owner.

During the truffle season some of our hotels offer truffle hunting excursions, which you possibly could use in combination with a cooking class at the hotel afterwards!
