About
Go behind the scenes of the world's most secretive business. Take a tour of a Provencal truffle plantation, learn how truffles are grown and truffle dogs are trained, and go on a hunt for France's elusive "black gold" with professional hunters who know the tricks of the trade. You will be regaled with stories of successes and sabotage, and learn to tell the difference between a real Provençal tuber melanosporum and its inferior Chinese counterparts. You'll also learn how to properly clean, store and cook with truffles. The Pastras olive and truffle oil.

Outstanding authentic local experience
Jul 2020
I was initially sceptical about truffles but am now a convert!

The evening consists of:
- A fascinating talk from Johann about his farm's history, the truffle industry and how to avoid tourist scam products
- Meeting the dogs and their local owner
- The truffle hunt (the dogs sniff out the truffles and you dig them up)
- Walk and talk around the rest of the grounds (including the beehives)
- Tasting menu (lots of exceptional sharing dishes with fresh truffles and drinks)
- Opportunity to buy some products

Johann was a superb host - informative, charming, funny, attentive and very impressive at managing some very energetic children without compromising the experience for adults.

There's parking on site, and I doubt most people would need a meal afterwards, as the tasting menu was very filling.

Johann was a wonderful instructor on all things truffle! The time flew by - and we all learned a lot (even our 5 and 10 year olds!). The truffles were also delicious- and the setting beautiful. Well worth the trip!
