The truffle hunter Sara and her dog Lisa will open us the door to the secret world of truffles. Together we will set out into the hidden corners of the woods, and with a bit of luck, we find our fragrant tubers. However, since the  essence of the truffles is their intriguing scent and  extraordinary gastronomic  experience, we will also get to know this side.
