Description

Join us for a full-day truffle immersion experience that will excite all your truffle senses! Become a truffle connoisseur through exploring and learning firsthand from world-class experts about the gastronomy, science, techniques and mystery of these remarkable tubers – one of the most exquisite and delicious foods in the world!

Start your day at the Westin Verasa in high Napa style with a glass of sparkling wine from Peju Province Winery as you interact with our international Michelin star/master chefs in an up-close and personal exchange. Ask your most burning questions about truffles. Hearthe chefs share their passion and secrets for cooking with them. Learn how to select, store and prepare truffles with Michelin starred Chef Ken Frank of La Toque as your guide.

What’s the difference between black and white truffles? And between European and native North American truffle species? See, smell and touch a variety of truffles with CBS Foodie Chap Liam Mayclem, and experience for yourself why some people love the Italian white truffle, while others prefer the Périgord black. Comparing against real truffles, you’ll uncover the limitations of truffle products like truffle oil and truffle salt. You’ll also taste delectable truffle bites prepared by our all-star chefs, and discover surprisingly interesting and fun facts about truffles and truffle hunting with world-renowned truffle scientist Dr. Paul Thomas (Did someone say “Sex and Truffles”?), and CPDT-KA certified dog trainer Alana McGee.

After the morning program, you’re just getting started! Next for this exceptional truffle day adventure, you’ll be whisked away on Beau Wine Tours’ luxurious limo buses to St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery for an exclusive Winery Truffle Lunch prepared by Chef Molly Nickerson of Michelin starred Marea, New York City, together with the winery’s own Chef Tod Kawachi. Every course features fresh truffles paired with St. Supéry’s finest wines. Succumb to the full pleasure of enjoying all the truffles and wine to the fullest – we’ve got you covered with hosts and transportation for the entire day!

No truffle immersion experience is complete without truffle dogs. The day culminates at Robert Sinskey Vineyards Truffle Orchard with a tasting of Sinskey’s prized wines, followed by a rousing orchard tour and dog training demo (petting allowed). See the trained truffle dogs in action as they sniff out truffles at Napa Valley’s first scientifically-managed truffle orchard.
