Make your travel plans now for a weekend of “foraged food and fine fermentations”.
The Oregon Truffle Festival offers not only truffles, but suggestions on what to drink with what truffle-y dish you’re eating.
Celebrate the chefs and foragers of wild truffles January 24 through 26, 2014, when Oregon truffles are expected to reach their peach of ripeness.
“Presently, we were aware of an odour gradually coming towards us, something musky, fiery, savoury, mysterious, — a hot drowsy smell, that lulls the senses, and yet enflames them, — the truffles were coming.” — William Makepeace Thackeray (who wasn’t from Oregon, but loved truffles nonetheless)
