Winter School – an adventure into the mysterious world of truffles
3 days of full-immersion at the Pollenzo campus and in the woods of Roero. A multidisciplinary journey, designed and led by professors from the University of Gastronomic Sciences and truffle industry experts.
The School is dedicated to the discovery of unexplored aspects of the world of truffles, according to the scientific approach of the Pollenzo University and is enriched by the field experience of Savini Tartufi, a Tuscan company that has been working with respect for nature and people since 1920, creating a culture around the world of truffles, ranging from research, to selection and production of truffle recipes to offer the “diamond of the forest” all year round.
In line with the holistic approach that distinguishes the university, masterclasses and workshops to transfer knowledge and technical skills will alternate with experiential and convivial moments, animated by the protagonists of this unique and rare product, those who hunt it, those who market it, and those who know how to enhance it at the table!
