    "The Oregon Truffle Festival is thrilled to welcome Chef Vitaly Paley for an encore virtual dinner party and cooking class on Saturday, February 27 at 5 pm PST! https://bit.ly/3udn2Xl"

    "We’re going virtual in 2021!
    The Oregon Truffle Festival is a “party with a purpose,” a nonprofit organization promoting a burgeoning truffle industry in North America, and a collection of winter events centered in the Willamette Valley, our country’s only wine and truffle region.
    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and current travel restrictions, we are bringing the 2021 Oregon Truffle Festival to you. We are excited to offer a series of truffle-infused events and classes through a virtual format, bringing the magic of Oregon truffles to home kitchens and living rooms around the country.
    We’re announcing more events in the coming weeks—subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear about tickets going on sale!"

    Tuber melanosporum (the best one), Tuber magnatum, Tuber borchii, or any other ?

    It's like wine : you can have the same grape variety, put chips of wood in a metal tank, you'll never have a real Chateau Margaux that has matured in an oak cask for years.

    "Truffe noire du Périgord" requires such an environment that the rest is just pale copies of the original, huh huh...

    Hi @AlainK,

    AFAIK, this festival is about both native PNW species and European species being cultivated in the PNW.

    I would not be surprised if they included taste tests contrasting region, species, host tree differences etc.

    I have tasted several species and liked them all for different qualities.
