"My first Oregon Truffle Festival left me feeling spoiled rotten and filled with wonder. Inhaling the aroma of the magical pineapple-scented Oregon Black truffles has been one of the great joys of my thirty three years with wild gourmet foods, and getting reacquainted with ripe seductive Oregon whites was a such a pleasure. To then look down into the eyes of the dog who dug them is something that stays in your heart forever. We foraged and then feasted on these magnificent truffles for a weekend of delicious camaraderie that only the Oregon Truffle Festival can provide."

I just returned from my first Oregon Truffle Festival and I can say that it was an awesome experience, beyond my wildest dreams. The staff of the festival were very friendly and made me and others feel welcomed. I enjoyed the whole weekend OTF experience so much that I would totally recommend it to others and hope to be back in the future.
