Truffle hunting with Giulio & Eta
We made our reservation about a week before we left for this amazing experience. Our drive was about 2 hours from where we were staying in Montalcino. We were making great time until we hit a stint of traffic and got stuck for a half hour. Giulio and Christina were gracious when I called to let him know we were late. We arrived to the truffle house and listened to Giulio about the truffles over some white wine, pecorino with truffle honey and bread, then we went out with Eda to search for the truffles. Since it's been so rainy, there weren't as many truffles as there usually is, but Eda found two after our walk which was great. We went back to the house, learned how to clean the truffles and then Giulio's partner Christina made us a fabulous meal. We started with white pizza with truffle, then a delicious bean soup and ended with ice cream topped with truffle honey and balsamic vinegar. I would certainly go back at another time of year to search for the white truffles with Giulio and Eda, I feel like we learned a lot and had a wonderful lunch!
