The American Truffle Company returns to Napa with the fifth annual Napa Truffle Festival in January – bringing together two complementary aspects of European truffles: the best chefs in the world known for their truffle cuisine, and the best truffle experts/scientists in the world recognised for their expertise and data on truffle cultivation.
Gourmands and aspiring truffle growers alike will find a bounty of activities throughout the festival weekend to satisfy their appetite and curiosity for the flavour and knowledge of one of the world’s most prized and delectable foods.
Recognised around the world as a wine and culinary Mecca, Napa Valley will host the festival weekend, partnering with The Westin Verasa Napa as “truffle central” for check in and programs.
Unique to this Festival is a Michelin star team of chefs led by Ken Frank of La Toque, presenting culinary demonstrations, and showcasing their extraordinary skills and talents in a tour de force Truffles & Wine Dinner on Saturday evening.
Leading the scientific track will be American Truffle Company cultivation expert Robert Chang and mycorrhizal expert/scientist Dr. Paul Thomas. Other special guests include master truffle dog trainer Alana McGee, wild mushroom foragers/mycologists David Campbell and Stephanie Jarvis, the team at Robert Sinskey Vineyards Truffle Orchard and, everyone’s favorite, Rico the truffle dog.
