We agree with Emily – truffles are magic! And, did you know pretty much anybody can truffle hunt? After you’ve read Emily’s post, check out our own Holly’s experience at this year’s Oregon Truffle Festival.

While we’re on the topic of truffles, we should tell you that Food Network’s Adam Gertler was recently in Oregon learning how to dig truffles with our friends at the Joel Palmer House.

Now, it’s your turn! Did you read anything about Oregon this week? Let us know!

about author Rhiannon West Chamberlain

Rhiannon is a native Oregonian who grew up exploring the nooks and crannies of the Oregon Coast and daydreaming in Powell’s City of Books. She now lives in NE Portland with her husband and her new baby boy and looks forward to teaching him to love Oregon as much as she does. Rhiannon attended both the University of Oregon and Portland State University, where she studied Journalism and Mass Media. She claims to ‘bleed green’ and happily cheers for both the Ducks and the Vikings every chance she gets. In her free time, Rhiannon enjoys sipping Oregon Pinot, finding new restaurants, bargain hunting and trying new recipes – sometimes successfully. She has a child-like enthusiasm for trying new things and rediscovering old ones – such as skee-ball, mini golf, and big slides.
