Truffle Hunting Experiences
Our truffle hunting experience days offer you the chance to experience the delight of hunting for truffles with a professional guide and his truffle dogs. You'll also enjoy a delicious lunch, where you'll be able to sample your freshly foraged truffles! Our truffle hunting experience days are based in and around Sussex, UK, just a few hours away from London.
Truffle course details
These workshops are designed for those with little to no experience hunting for truffles and for those who are keen to learn about how and where to start.
Our day begins with a welcoming circle, where you will be introduced to the rest of the group, our truffle hunting expert and to your new furry friends, who you'll be working with closely over the course of the day.
We'll take a walk through the woodland and learn about what truffles are, what habitat they grow in and how to find them, with plenty of tips on finding them without your own trained truffle dog.
We'll then let the dogs off their leads and let them lead us to the truffles. You'll learn their signals and tells, and we'll show you how to work with them. You'll be chasing after the hounds and burying your fingers into the earth to dig out buried treasure before you know it!
After we've collected a basket of truffles (and any edible mushrooms we might find on the way!) we'll head back to share a delicious meal together, with plenty of fresh truffle shavings, of course!

I took my mum to this workshop for her Birthday because she loves truffles. Turns out, we'd never had a fresh one! Only truffle oil which we had no idea wasn't from real truffles! It was so fun and exciting to follow the dogs round the woods and collect the truffles. The best bit by far was the food and that we got to take some home! We made truffle pasta and it was amazing!
