Truffle hunting

With the escort and our trained truffle dogs we are going to a nearby forest to hunt Istrian underground treasure – the truffle. On our path we pass along the “7 waterfalls” – one of the most wonderful natural beauties of Buzet.

The road is full of numerous waterfalls and natural rocks for climbing which is along to unspoiled nature and hunting, an extra attraction for visitors . While searching the forest to find the truffles, visitors will have the opportunity to experience a unique adventure imbued with adrenaline and joy in moments of finding truffles.

After coming back from the wood, for our guests we prepare cold starters with 2 types of homemade cheese with, Istrian salami with truffles, various canapes with truffle spreads and extra virgin olive oil with white truffles.

After a cold starters we continue the tasting with preparation of scrambled eggs with truffles, in front of our guests where they participate together with us in preparation.

In the end it follows the dessert – homemade cottage cheese (from a nearby family farm in the neighboring village) topped with pear jam and black truffles or vanilla ice cream with white truffle honey.

Drinks included our home made wine – teran and malvasia, home made juices, tea, water

About the hunt

A truffle hunt is a special and unforgettable event for any fan of this subterranean mushroom.

The specific scent that comes from damp soil, mostly in oak woods, is impossible to discern for human senses, but a trained dog’s sense of smell will feel it and find the truffle.

By rapidly moving its paws, the dog points to the area where it has found a truffle, showing its owner the spot where this underground treasure can be unearthed.
