With Milan Schutte from Giuliano Tartufi

Many people in the world know the term “Truffles”, but very few know exactly how to distinguish them, recognize them and explore their different qualities. For our special festive Truffle week, we invite you to join in two truffle workshops and one exquisite Truffle dinner made with Giuliano Tartufi truffles of Italy!

The workshop is designed to teach you about everything truffles! Learn about the truffle finding process and how they are made into the delicious treats that we enjoy in our meals and dishes. Followed by a presentation and live Truffle making demo by truffle expert Milan Schutte and our resort Chefs.


Giuliano Martinelli began the Truffle journey in 1980, searching through the countryside with his grandfather and dog, where he found his first fresh truffle. From that point on he spent his days searching for white and black truffles in the woods around Pietralunga, Italy. He became a true fresh truffle expert in 1986 and in 2000 he branded Giuliano Tartufi, which is dedicated to producing only the best truffles or the “fruits of nature”.  Producing specialty white and black truffles out of Pietralunga , the passion of Giuliano for truffles is alive and well and has expanded to sell truffles in shop windows all across the world.

Our expert Milan Schutte has an extensive background in Truffle production and started his career in 1993 working in Milan and opening his own company, Fine Food Milan where he sold truffles, caviar and other delicacies. He later partnered with Michelin Chefs from Holland and Belgium, which eventually led him to meeting Mr. Giuliano. Building and growing the Giuliano Tartufi business, Mr. Schutte is a true truffle expert.
