What you'll do

With this online experience, I want to feed your curiosity and share with you, the secrets of the truffle world!
Truffles are irresistible, they are highly prized, and they are the most expensive food in the world.
In this 90 min experience I will explain everything you need to know and all that you are curious about, in the world of the mysterious truffle.
There is so much to know and much more to the truffle world than just Black and white.
I want to talk about all six edible species that are forged and go over the how every one of them is different in smell, taste, and price.
I will tell you what it takes to train the dogs and explain more on the process of hunting truffles.
I will reveal details in what conditions truffles grow and how to store and preserve them.
I will also introduce you to the market of selling truffles and how to avoid the ever so common truffle fraud.
Last, but not least, I will advise you with the best ways to cook this "diamond in the kitchen"!

My name is Matteo, I am 33 years old and i live in the countryside outside of Rome. Ever since I was a kid, nature has been a huge part of my life.
I am super passionate about mushrooms and truffles and my dream was to make this love my profession.
I have been a professional truffle hunter now for 12 years, and I supply many restaurants with fresh truffles.
I have my own line of truffle products and am proficient in the culinary cuisine of truffles.
I am a dog lover and an expert in training them to search and find truffles in the wild.
3 years ago I designed a unique truffle experience for people who wanted to discover more about truffles.
In these past 3 years i have had the pleasure of sharing my knowledge with over 2000 guests. I very much enjoy sharing my passion of truffles, and I would love to share it with you.

Was a great experience given it was online, I enjoyed every minute of it. He was very helpful and answered all my questions, with a lot of in depth knowledge and experience. He is passionate about what he does and shares everything with you and is very generous with sharing very useful tips. I greatly enjoyed talking to Matteo and would highly recommend this experience.

Matteo is a warm and friendly, generational truffle hunter! I am a true lover of real truffles - not the chocolate kind and not the fake essence of truffle that permeates our restaurant menus. We learned so much that I never knew. I will remember the things because Matteo educated us in a memorable, fun way. We can't wait to go to Italy after the pandemic and truffle hunt with Matteo. So wonderful!

This was such a cool experience! I learned so much about finding truffles and what restaurants should be doing when they put truffles on my dish. Matteo is warm and friendly and is a third generation truffle hunter. He is clearly very knowledgeable and excited to share information about the world of truffles! Next time I'm in Italy, I'm going to his live experience!!

LOVE this experience! I've had a fair amount of truffle dishes in my life, traveled to Piedmont for its famous Alba white truffle and even once followed a truffle hunter and his dogs on a truffle hunt in Puglia. Yet, I never really got the chance to truly learn about the truffle, then I found Matteo's experience. Matteo is a 3rd generation truffle hunter (if not longer) and it's evident that he is truly passionate about what he does. He shared his deep knowledge about different types of truffle (not just black or white truffle as I know it!), where various types of truffle grow and the strict rules about truffle hunting in Italy. He also shared with us how to know what we are getting when we order truffle at a restaurant, the best way to enjoy truffle, plus many of his personal stories. Matteo was very flexible in steering the conversation to the aspects of the truffle the participants were most interested in learning. Highly recommended!

Matteo really knows what he is doing. Truffles definitely are his passion. It stood out when he talked about truffles. I learned a lot of insights. If you love truffles, you’ll learn a lot from this online experience.
