International correspondent Jeremiah Tittle travels to
This little known nook of the world is the home of the Slow Food movement which has for more than two decades garnered international support for eco-gastronomic, traditional methods in agriculture combating the shortcuts of fast food and fast life. Also, this hilly Langhe region flanked by the French and Swiss Alps plays host to the 78th Annual Truffle Fair from September to November.
In the spirit of the event, Roberta takes visitors on truffle hunts with the Trifalao, dogs trained to sniff out the black and more precious “white gold”.
Visit her online before you visit her in person at www.Villalafavorita.it and enjoy a rare slice of la dolce vita.
