Tuscan Mushroom Hunting and Bistecca alla Fiorentina Class

If you love the outdoors and want the opportunity to try classic Tuscan dishes this is the class for you. Put on you hiking boots and get ready to explore the Tuscan woods. We go out together with Paolo’s father, Gilberto, whose been hunting Porcinis since he was 5. He’ll take us on a trek through the forest and show us his secret spots for finding the best Tuscan mushrooms (there are way more than just Porcinis out there). Then, we set up our grill and get ready for an  outdoor feast. You’ll learn how to choose and grill bistecca to perfection, try cheeses, olives and a variety of local heirloom vegetables that have been marinated under the best olive oils. Taste Local wines and learn our favorite mushroom and truffle dishes.

Transportation is included for up to 6 students. This is an all day class.

We wish we could offer this class all the time. However, because of the seasons and weather we need for mushrooms to grow, we only offer it when Gilberto thinks there will be a reasonable chance of finding mushrooms. If you don’t care about finding mushrooms and just want Gilberto to take you on a hike through the Tuscan hills, let us know that to. It’s his favorite thing to do.

*** Though we’re almost always successful because of the nature of mushroom hunting, finding mushrooms is never guaranteed. But beautiful views are!

All prices are per person. Pricing is based on the number of people in your group.
