Truffle Hunt

Four adults will join Oregon Truffle Feasts’ author, Dawn Meiklejohn, and her dog, Lidia on a two hour truffle foray through the woods (approximately one hour drive from Seattle) to find our native truffles, followed by a tailgate picnic of truffle infused food and drink.  Participants will learn about Pacific Northwest Truffles, why dogs are used to forage, how Lidia was trained, how foods are infused and will take home a copy of Oregon Truffle Feasts.  Adults only.  Limited to four.  Foray needs to be during truffle season (weather dependent, usually November to April) at a mutually convenient time.  Expires:  June, 2019
