Napa Truffle Festival, World Class Cuisine Meets Cutting Edge Truffle Science!

Selective de-saturation to acentuate the lucious earth tones of the White Peidmont and Black Perigord Truffles being gently held in cupped hands.

Don’t have time to indulge in the entire Napa Truffle Festival weekend? Now they’ve made it even easier for you to join in the fun with Truffles à la Carte – programs, lunches, dinner and Marketplace to choose from!

The Festival launches Friday night with a reception for guests to hobnob with hosts Robert Chang and Dr. Paul Thomas of the American Truffle Company, and Chef Ken Frank of La Toque; with keynote speaker Barbara Fairchild, and the Michelin Star Chefs – sans toques – who have come from as far as Chicago and Italy to prepare the truffles!

Saturday begins with a breakfast and keynote address by distinguished food and travel writer and former editor of Bon Appétit, Barbara Fairchild, followed by scientific-grower programs, a foray to Raymond Vineyards for a tour, tasting and lunch by Chef Michel Cornu, and finishing with a truffle orchard tour at Sinskey Vineyards (truffle dogs will be on hand to sniff things out).

Saturday night, truffles will be celebrated at the grand Truffles & Wine Dinner at La Toque, featuring a multi-course truffle menu and wine pairing – each course prepared by a Michelin Star chef: Michael Cimarusti of Providence in Los Angeles; Suzette Gresham-Tognetti of Acquerello in San Francisco; Marco Gubbiotti of La Bastiglia in Spello, Italy; and Andrew Zimmerman of Sepia in Chicago.

Sunday is devoted to all things wine and culinary at Robert Mondavi Winery: a cooking demo with Michelin Star chef, followed by a tour and tasting, and lunch prepared by Chef Jeff Mosher.

The Festival concludes on Monday with a lively Napa Truffle Festival Marketplace at Oxbow Public Marketfrom farm, orchard and vineyard to kitchen, table and glass—showcasing local wineries, artisanal vendors and specialty food products.

The beautiful Westin Verasa in downtown Napa will again serve as the host venue, offering a special rate for the Festival weekend.

The second annual Napa Truffle Festival is presented by the American Truffle Company.
