After years of nagging, our wonderful Tuscan friends are coming for a brief visit. The Sacchini family, Giorgio, Paola and Denise will be here in Oakland this coming weekend. Giorgio has been the Oliveto truffle hunter and agent for the past 14 years, and also the main reason we’ve been able to get our hands on the very best truffles for our annual truffle dinners.
The Sacchinis will be in the Oliveto Cafe this Sunday night, February 14th. We’re not exactly sure what they’ll be doing, but they’ll be making some food and hanging out.
We stay with Giorgio every time we visit Tuscany, as have many of our friends. They have a wonderful agriturismo: http://www.agriturismoporcellina.it/
