Aug. 19, 2009 - PRLog -- Building on the success of its truffle hunting excursions in Italy Love Umbria today announced the launch of truffle hunting weekends in Umbria for autumn 2009.

On the truffle weekends, participants will not only get the chance to join a professional truffle hunter and his dogs on their daily truffle hunt in the beautiful forests of Umbria but will also learn to prepare truffle dishes at a rustic cooking lesson. The truffle hunt is also followed by a delicious truffle lunch consisting of truffle dishes and other locally-sourced food and wine. The truffle hunting weekends run from Friday to Sunday so are perfect for a weekend away or as part of a longer gourmet tour in Italy.
Love Umbria founder Cristiana says, “We are very excited to introduce this truffle hunting weekend to our range of gourmet tours and hope that it will offer food lovers a unique experience and give them the chance to enjoy and learn more about one of Italy’s most rare and precious ingredients”.

Weekends from September 2009 to March 2010

Ryanair flies direct from London Stansted to Perugia airport in Umbria on Friday morning and back on Sunday morning. Rome, Florence, Ancona and Pisa airports are within two hours of Umbria. Love Umbria can also arrange for airport pick-ups.
