Along with meeting truffle experts and chefs, participants will be able to smell, touch and taste truffles in unique and interactive ways. Learn as Chef Ken Frank of Michelin starred La Toque shares his personal tips on cooking with truffles, including how to select, store and prepare them (tasty truffle bites are included). Discover interesting facts and lore about the mythic mushroom from world-renowned mycologist Dr. Paul Thomas. Follow expert dog trainer Alana McGee into the fascinating world of hunting truffles with – you guessed it – truffle dogs!
This dynamic culinary and science adventure also includes an extraordinary Winery Truffle Lunch at the spectacular Shadybrook Estate Winery where Michelin starred Chef Gabriel Kreuther of NYC will prepare an unforgettable truffle menu perfectly paired with Shadybrook’s superb wines.
