deck the halls with gifts of truffles

November 30, 2011 /

What’s better than a gift that keeps on giving? I, for one, would swoon over a box of passes to the 2012 Napa Truffle Festival nestled under the branches of the Christmas tree. A four day festival of the senses featuring black Perigord truffles is one of the most delicious, (not to mention sensual), gifts I can imagine.

You can be the hero of someone’s Holiday season by purchasing someone special a Grand Truffle Weekend Package at Or, treat the science-minded food lover in your life to a Scientific Truffle Grower Package–this includes all the events I’m most excited to attend. If I lived in the Bay Area, I would treat all my friends and colleagues to tickets to the very affordable Festival Marketplace–a special treat you can all share together.

And if you think a package of passes makes for an anticlimactic present, imagine the glorious weeks of anticipation the recipient will feel leading up to the decadent weekend. (And they’ll think of you, the genius who thought of such a delicious gift, all the while!)

There are several other gift options, all promising to tease the senses with Mother Nature’s ultimate indulgence of truffle. Review them all at
