Eugene, Oregon: Oregon Truffle Festival
For some, wintertime is synonymous with hitting the slopes, but for gourmands in Oregon, it’s all about the arrival of white truffle season. The Pacific Northwest celebrates the harvest of their native truffles with a culinary festival in the Willamette Valley wine region from January 20 – 29. Not only will there be seminars and foraging excursions with truffle dogs, there’ll also be dinners cooked by top chefs like Chris Cosentino, Renee Erickson, John Gorham, and Greg and Gabi Denton. Authors and culinary icons Harold McGee and Dave Arnold will moderate talks on Oregon truffles featuring experts in the industry from around the globe. Aspiring mycologists can purchase tickets for the weekend, starting at $575.
