Successful Truffle Hunt

Before starting our new season after a 5 month absense from Tuscany due to a family situation in California, I wish to note a wonderful group of fun attendees that ended our 2014 cooking week season.

For many the highlight was the day of our most successful truffle hunt, 500 grams of white truffle. Leaving Villa Lucia in a rain storm I thought the day would be cancelled. When arriving in San Miniato, not only did it stop raining but the ground prove to be suitable for the truffle hounds to sniff out the subterranean tuber fungus prized around the world as the “diamond of the kitchen”.  The  grounds were  muddy, slippery and rocky in areas making the walk through the woods difficult at times, yet the prize well worth the effort even if we were not rewarded monetarily.

  1. Lucy…. This indeed was a highlight among many that week! Best wishes to you and George as you start your new season back at the Villa. So bummed we were out of the country during your recent open house…(I did get to go to Italy again though). 😘
