A misty truffle nirvana


Welcome to Smirra, a tiny commune in the (also tiny) village of Cagli, in the Italian Marches region. The soggy forest grounds in the Marche are a true truffle nirvana and the house that we rented on top of this hill in Smirra even came with its own turffle hunters, occasionally searching for the rare delicacy on the vast domain. If they found truffles, they would save us a few and stock them in our fridge… I took this photo in the early morning when the clouds were still hanging low, giving the scene a nice, misty look.
