We are excited as the first of our truffle farming seminars in Spain for this season are just coming.
DATES are 12TH-17TH DECEMBER 2016 AND 6TH-11TH FEBRUARY 2017, but note that february tour is almost sold out and there are just 3 places left for december. So if you still want to join, contact us now.
One of the new features this year is the workshop about aromatic profiles and post harvest treatments that Dr. Pedro Marco Montori will develop. He´s a researcher at Zaragoza University. His PhD was focused on post harvest truffle treatments, so you´ll be able to compare liofilizated vs. heated vs. wax coatings on truffles, analyze how truffles breathe at different temperatures, and learn and understand the complexity of truffle aroma.
If you want to see some of his scientific papers on this topic, check his research gate profile.
And if you want to see what we do in these seminars, just get in http://barcelonatruffletour.com
Apologize as it is in spanish, but in this just published chilean review (page 16), you can check about truffle post harvest protocols, mostly extracted from Pedro´s research: https://issuu.com/nuevocampo/docs/nc__edicio__n_2
Looking forward to meet you in Barcelona soon 🙂
