truffle foray march 21st

135.00

With the cool temperatures, it appears that most things in nature are taking a winter respite.  In fact, the fauna underground is at its busiest.  On this extraordinary field trip, we’ll venture into the woods with a trained Lagotto Romagnolo dog, an ancient Italian breed born to hunt truffles.  We'll enjoy a hike through the trees while Lidia gets to do what she loves best--uncover truffle treasure.  Field trippers will leave with newfound knowledge, the opportunity to try foods that have been infused with these highly sought-after fungi, a copy of the cookbook Oregon Truffle Feasts. and if we're lucky, some truffles too!

Light lunch and libations provided. Please dress appropriately for weather and hiking.

Dawn Meiklejohn and her canine partner Lidia have been hunting for Cascadia truffles for several years -- taking the burgeoning industry by storm.  She is the author of Oregon Truffle Feasts, featuring over 75 recipes featuring these Northwest delicacies, and regularly gives lectures on Oregon truffles and foraging.
