In the beautiful hills of Tuscany, in a village called Bagno a Ripoli, south of Florence, we met with Giulio, Truffle Hunter, artist and life lover. Giulio clearly shares our passion for great food and even more for the truffle delicacy. He explained us with passion about the different types of truffles, the seasons, where to look for them, about his special bond with his dog Eda…
We went for an hour walk in the forest… even if Eda was a bit distracted by our presence, we found several bianchetti truffles.
Back at Giulio and Cristina’s place, with the most magnificent view over the hills and Florence, Giulio tought us how to clean the truffles and Cristina made some delicious food: pizza with truffle oil and bianchetti truffles and a special white bean soup, also with bianchetti topping. And for dessert: vanilla ice cream with some drops of 25 years old traditional aceto balsamico di Modena… another discovery.
This was an amazing and interesting experience. If you’re a foodie like me… just do it. You’ll definitely enjoy it!
