Sustainable Truffle Hunting

Searching for the elusive truffle, I will show you where to look and some tale tale signs to look out for. I will show you what a truffle woodland looks like, explain the ecology and focus on the woodland community. I will endeavour to show you truffle flies and how to use them to hunt; I will show you truffle beetles, considered a truffle pest, animals truffle feeding platforms and signs of our wonderful animal competitors at work; I will teach you how to harvest sustainably and with respect to the community of invertebrates and all that depend on truffle within the food chain and the future generations of trees.

We will be returning dried truffle to the wild using truffle trimmings not fit for consumption in the kitchen after truffle prep and cleaning. With permission from the landowner we will be Individually inoculating young regenerated whips with a sterile innoculum that I have made at HQ, in areas where there should in my opinion be more truffle presence, I will repeat these inoculations again in subsequent years in March through to May. Constantly loosing woodland habitat as a result of land reclamation/overpopulation I feel it is my obligation to spread the truffle love for the next generation of trees, their communities and others to enjoy as much as I do.

Delicious fresh soup and bread will be served for lunch with truffle of course - along with other wild samples from our foray for you to taste. Please state any dietary requirements
