Set off for a virtual truffle-hunting experience in the countryside of northern Italy.
Join Natale from his 5th-generation family farm in the Alba region of Italy as he shares his passion for truffle hunting with you. You’ll learn all about the history of truffle hunting in Italy—and about truffle eating, too! Natale will explain why the Romans referred to truffles as “the son of lightning” and why early Christians called it “the food of the devil.”
Then, Natale will teach you about the characteristics of the truffle, its growth cycle, and the differences between white and black truffles. Finally, you’ll meet Lizzy and Brio, the family’s truffle-hunting dogs. No truffle could be found without them, and Natale will explain how they use the truffle hunting dogs to search their grounds every truffle hunting season. Join in on this virtual truffle hunting experience to learn about the ins-and-outs of sourcing one of world’s most notable—and delicious—products!
