Oregon Truffle Festival happens over three weekends in January
Oregon Truffle season is fast approaching. The first weekend is the Joriad Truffle Dog Championship in Eugene and surrounding area followed by the Joriad Awards Gala at Willamette Valley Vineyards, in Salem. At the qualifying events in Eugene on January 16, spectators are welcomed to cheer for teams of hunters.
Then, January 22-24, events come to Yamhill County. Guests can choose from the Terrior of Truffles or Bringing it Home. Each choice has the Shaved & Infused dinner on Friday night, a breakfast on Saturday morning and Sunday’s Oregon Truffle Marketplace. The folks who do the Terrior of Truffles have a Truffle foray and luncheon on Saturday afternoon while the Bringing it Home folks have a cooking class in the afternoon. There are opportunities to have dinner in one of five Yamhill Valley restaurants, each featuring a prix fixe menu featuring Oregon black and white truffles. And the option to just attend the Oregon Truffle Marketplace which will have cooking classes, chef demos, wine tasting, artisan food samples, fresh Oregon truffles for sale and a truffle dog demonstration.
Finally, January 29-31, Eugene hosts the OTF. There are several options for guests in Eugene, The Epicurious, the Gourmand, The Truffle Growers All-Adventure. There will be Truffle Dog Training, a Grand Truffle Dinner and the Eugene Fresh Truffle Marketplace.
