In search of the ever shy truffles!

When in Rome…whatever, when in Langhe at this time of year it has to be in search of truffles. Having ‘found’ plenty at the local market on Sunday we thought a gentle stroll through the woods to find our own with the local truffle hunter and his faithful dog would be fun.  It was certainly fun although more of a mud slide and survival course at times and not for the faint hearted. With a storm brewing on the horizon we just made it back safely before the heavens opened up. I now understand why the trifolau walking stick has a very sharp metal spade like point at the end…for gripping onto those slopes for dear life.

Hard at work

Seriously thick woodland with extremely slippery slopes!
