Italy is one of the major countries producing truffles; in fact, in the various regions of Italy many species can be collected and then cooked according to traditional local recipes. As you surely already know, the white truffle is the most appreciated variety, being also the most rare. Alba and Asti are the main areas of production of white truffles in the Piedmont region, but also San Miniato in Tuscany and Acqualagna in the Marches. The black truffle is certainly most spread, whose production and harvesting is very common in Umbria. At certain times of the year, fairs and festivals are organized, or even international exhibitions dedicated to the truffle, where one can learn about this precious fruit, and even taste and buy it.
If you love truffles and you are planning a holiday to combine the discovery of wonderful places with the flavour of local products, here are the farmhouses and holiday houses organizing truffle tasting.
