Napa Truffle Fest - All About Truffles Seminar


truffle_allAboutTrufflesSeminar_2014As North America’s premier truffle event, the 4th annual festival (January 17- 20, 2014) will again showcase the venerated black truffle, which will be discussed, prepared and feasted upon for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Come learn all about truffles-the cuisine, the sex and the science! In this exciting, comprehensive primer about all things truffle, you will get tips on cooking with truffles from our Michelin star host chef Ken Frank who will discuss how to handle fresh truffles in the kitchen, as well as common myths and misconceptions about the various truffle species and “products.”

You’ll also get a glimpse into the science of truffles (including “sex and truffles”!) with world-renowned truffle scientist Dr. Paul Thomas and truffle expert Robert Chang; plus why science plays a key role in how truffles are grown and harvested.

History of Truffle hunting: Pigs, Dogs, Robots and Common Misconceptions

Includes: continental breakfast, All About Truffles seminar, *winery truffle lunch, truffle orchard tour and dog training demonstration.
