Owner description: Truffle hunting in the beautiful Umbrian hills, an unforgettable culinary experience, a day spent in the company of colorful locals, a stroll through some stunning countryside... The Wild Foods Gastronomical Adventure is a piece of Italy you will never forget. You spend a day immersed in authentic traditional Italian company, culture and cuisine. You hunt truffles, cook truffles, eat truffles, as well as get to experience an amazing part of Italy far away from the usual tourist trails. You also experience some traditional 'wild' cuisine, maybe wild boar stew, sauteed hare, or roast guinea fowl. It's great for foodies and wine-lovers, or for anyone just wanting to immerse themselves in the landscape, people and culture of Umbria.

“Fabulous experience”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Our extended family of 10 spent the day with Mac, Francesca, and their family. We had an amazing truffle hunt that was followed by a picnic on a hillside overlooking the countryside. The picnic included fabulous truffled eggs! The beautiful day did not end there. We went back to the family's homes where we watched Nona make pasta. Our children played with Mac and Francesca's children then we ate a wonderful authentic Italian meal with the family. We felt like family! Everyone was so welcoming and excited to share their lives and experiences with us. We will definitely be back as soon as we can get there. This is an experience that should not be missed. After traveling to different parts of Italy for the last 9 years, our day with Mac, Francesca, and the family is at the top of our experiences. I would highly recommend spending at day experiencing Wild Foods. FABULOUS!!

“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

What can I say that hasn't already been said? My husband and I and our 3 kids had a magical day with Mac and Francesca and their family high in Montefalco. Even though it was a bitterly cold day (thanks for the extra clothes Francesca!), the truffle hunt was great.. and the Prosecco, and food on the hillside and at out hosts' house even better. Our children fell in love instantly with the countryside and Mac and Francesca's two kids. They spent the day outside playing with them while we did all the good stuff- drink, talk, eat and laugh! The kids are still talking about "Dante's house"!
The food was fantastic and it was a true pleasure to have a wine and a chat with "the three wise men" (the rusty Italian came in handy!).
Thank you for a wonderful time Mac, Francesca and family - it was a true highlight of our 7 week European adventure.
If you're going to Umbria- you must do this!!

“What a fantastic day - Unmissable”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

My boyfriend and I spent a day with Mac and Francesca's family who were very friendly and put on a great day. Great food, beautiful countryside and lots of fun, laughter and good wine. Well worth a visit to learn about the history of truffle hunting as well as spending the day in a relaxed and family atmosphere.

Will definitely be recommending to anyone who will listen!

We have been living in Italy for 2 years and this experience has been a high light for us. Amazing views and a hard to get Italian experience. It was a great time for both adults and our children. I highly suggest not missing this!

Had a great time, this is how to really experience local Umbrian culture and traditions. The hosts Mac and his wife are lovely and super accommodating. Great fun. Making pasta with Nona was one of the highlights of my trip
