I am a professional truffle hunter and I've been doing this business for 12 years. I've always had a great love for nature and animals since i was young, for this reason my passion has become my job!
I am a chef as well specialized on mushrooms and truffles dishes, i started to cook with my father in our restaurant when i was 15, this is my second biggest passion!

Abbiamo trascorso belle ore nel bosco con Matteo e i suoi bellissimi cani. Matteo ci ha raccontato molte cose interessanti sui tartufi e sulla loro ricerca. Il coronamento è stato l'eccellente pasto con i tartufi preparato personalmente da Matteo. Una grande esperienza che posso consigliare caldamente. Grazie Matteo, sei grande! si può sentire il tuo entusiasmo per la tua passione e il tuo lavoro.

Abbiamo trascorso una giornata molto piacevole e spensierata alla ricerca di tartufi immersi nella natura con Matteo e le sue infallibili collaboratrici 🐶. Matteo è una persona socievole e appassionata del proprio lavoro, ci ha spiegato diverse cose sul tartufo oltre ad averci cucinato un ottimo pranzo! Un’esperienza che consigliamo vivamente, ci siamo divertiti molto :) da ripetere!

È stata un'esperienza magnifica, Matteo è una persona deliziosa, di compagnia, appassionato del suo mestiere e molto ospitale. Abbiamo trascorso la giornata passeggiando nella natura mentre Matteo ci deliziava con le sue parole e successivamente con le pietanze da lui cucinate. Abbiamo avuto l'impressione che il tempo si fosse fermato, lontani dal frastuono della città, dalle preoccupazioni quotidiane e immersi nella natura. In questi tempi difficili trovare una persona genuina e dagli occhi sorridenti come Matteo scalda più di un abbraccio. A presto :) Chiara e Marco
