Black truffle hunting in the Sibillini mts, fresh egg pasta and more

Friends from Missouri came to visit, so I tried to fill their week with fun activities. We headed off one day to the nearby Sibillini mountains where we went truffle hunting with a cute little dog who found 3 healthy black truffles. Back at the agriturismo, the owner's mother showed us how to make egg pasta and let those with interest help roll out the pasta in sheets. We had the truffles for lunch and then headed on to Force where we visited a great shoe manufacturer and the copper artisans who are dying out like the lace makers of Offida.
I finished planting the 700 kg of grass seed in the vineyard just in time for the Fall rainy season and the 1st shoots came up today in the yard.
