Chef Sunny Jin of The Allison Inn & Spa prepares for the Black & White Dinner Series in 2016.

A haute spot in the midst of the Pacific Northwest’s notoriously saturnine winter, the Annual Oregon Truffle Festival returns this January and February, with two full weekends of truffle foraging and feasting throughout the state. From January 25 through 28, Eugene will host the festivities, starting with the Joriad North American Truffle Dog Championship’s war of the noses, followed by a truffle growers’ speaker series, Grand Truffle Dinner, truffle macaroni and cheese “macdown” and fresh truffle marketplace with cooking demonstrations and truffles for sale. On February 16, the merrymaking moves north to the beautiful Yamhill Valley, as Willamette Valley Vineyards and chef Ken Forkish (Ken’s Artisan Bakery, Trifecta) kick off the weekend with a wine and truffle-redolent reception for the film, James Beard: America’s First Foodie. Afterward, savor a full schedule of truffle dinners, truffle hunts, winery luncheons, a four-course dinner at Domaine Serene winery with renowned Portland chefs Vitaly Paley and Cathy Whims, and the Newberg Fresh Truffle Marketplace, where guests sample regional wines and artisan foods, as well as fresh Oregon truffles, of course. Tickets are available for sale at oregontrufflefestival.org, and a portion of the festival proceeds will be donated to the Food for Lane County food bank in Eugene.
