About the event
We’ll meet at Long Meadow Ranch Tasting Room and Maria will give a talk about the history of truffles and how they so thoroughly seduced humans, as well as their vital roles in the ecosystem and the cultivation of them taking place world-wide. She and her truffle hound, Flora Jayne, will do a truffle hunting demonstration and she’ll explain how she’s been training her dog to find our native truffles and how you can start training your dog. Afterwards we’ll do a truffle tasting and wine pairing with Long Meadow Ranch.
The truffle smelling and tasting will include different kinds of truffles, like our native Oregon spring white truffle mixed into Strauss butter and served on warm gougeres. Perigord truffle will be infused into triple cream cow cheese and then shaved over it and served with brioche toast squares, shaved artichoke salad with Burgundy truffles and truffle infused aioli, and we'll finish with a fruity, jammy Oregon Black truffle Pavolova that has been infused with egg whites and whipped cream, then shaved over the Pavolovas with rose petals and tangerine zest. Long Meadow Ranch will pair the truffle dishes with their reknown Pinot Gris, Chardonay and Pinot Noir grown in the Anderson Valley.
This experience is part of a culinary mushroom weekend.
