HAPPY NEW YEAR! Let’s hope the mushrooming in 2014 is as good as it was in 2013.
Thanks to Mia, we ended the year eating Oregon white truffles grated over fresh pasta. Excellent!! She and her amazing dog will be going out again, so keep the information on this photo handy if you are interested in buying some from her.
The Oregon Truffle festival is sold out in Eugene, Jan. 24-26, but the marketplace is open. For $15 you can peruse many vendors who sell everything truflle, taste many wines, watch chefs cook with truffles and sample their creations, see a truffle dog demonstration, and listen to talks with slide shows about the hunt. Very reasonable for all that.
We hope to have a “Survivor’s Banquet” this winter, a wild mushroom potluck, so stay tuned.
