Truffle Foray Leader
Sunny Diaz and her dog, Stella, hunt truffles professionally from November to March. Formerly in health care, Diaz made the shift, she said, “out of sheer hedonism.” She originally attended OTF as a passionate foodie, and became enamored with truffle hunting with dogs, soon participating in the Joriad competition, as well as leading forays and truffle dog demonstrations during OTF events with her amazing truffle dog Stella.
In the past few years, she’s increasingly focused on working with chefs, both with special truffle dinners and leading forays specifically geared to culinary professionals. She’s currently transforming her micro-farm, Little Cascadia, into a food-centric retreat and event space.
