A walk in the forests above Bellagio in search of native truffles and mushrooms.
The day begins at 10am at the Salice Blu Restaurant, where you will enjoy a quick coffee before meeting Chef Luigi at the starting point of the walk. You will also be accompanied by truffle experts and truffle dogs.
The walk takes place in forests of hornbeam, chestnut and oak owned by the Gandola family, in a tranquil area with a view over the extraordinary lake. After the picking, you return to the kitchen where you will learn some techniques for using and preserving the mushrooms and truffles and you will enjoy a well-earned lunch. The experience ends at around 3pm.
Being sure about what you find and collect is the most important thing:
Chef Luigi has a truffle licence issued by Lombardy Regional Council and is an expert in local edible mushrooms.
