Truffle hunting with The Spanish Touch

We are still in the grips of one of the coldest, strangest winters Spain has suffered in a long time, but that does not mean that there are not things going on! With the recession affecting Spain as much as the rest of the world, prices have been driven down and barriers opened up to visit places and do things that previously had been extremely difficult to get to. This year, the Spanish Touch is offering a unique opportunity to go look for the culinary "black gold" of Spain, truffles. In the beginning of March we will be taking a small group into the region of Graus, in Aragon, and will be going out with a local farmer to search for truffles. We will also be visiting the truffle fair in Graus, with events like cooking classes and a truffle market.

There are still a few openings available, and if you are interested, please visit our website or contact us at for more information.
