Truffle Hunting in Provence

Truffle Hunting in Provence

Summer truffle season is just a month away, so there’s still plenty of time to book a truffle hunt at Les Pastras. Go behind the scenes of the world’s most secretive business. Take a tour of a Provençal truffle plantation, learn how truffles are cultivated and truffle dogs are trained, and go on a hunt for France’s elusive “black gold” with professional hunters who know all the tricks of the trade. You’ll be regaled with stories of successes and sabotage, and learn to tell the difference between a real Provençal tuber melanosporum and its inferior Chinese and Italian counterparts. You’ll also learn how to properly clean, store and cook with truffles. Tours are followed up with a sampling of fresh truffle hors d’oeuvres, Champagne and a tasting of Les Pastras’s organic olive and truffle oil.

    • Thank you so much for your comment, Emily! It really is a dream come true to live here. If you ever get to Provence, please come visit us for a truffle hunt! We could also organize a meal for you at a gorgeous all-truffle restaurant that’s worth the 1 hour drive from here. What’s your opinion of the Oregon truffles? I’ve never tasted one.
