Join us on Thursday, January 8, 2009 at our General Meeting for speaker David Pilz Dan Luoma, for a talk on Oregon’s Emergent Culinary Truffle Industry. We will meet at our usual location: LCC Building 16, Room 115 at 7:00pm:
Of all the World’s culinary delicacies, truffles stand out as the ultimate luxury food. Among the regions where they are or can be grown, Oregon has a suite of competitive advantages for their production. We have our own delicious native truffles and have all the resources needed to produce large quantities of cultivated European truffles. Oregon now stands on the cusp of a unique opportunity to become a world leader in the production of this highly prized rarity.
The truffle white paper that David will discuss explains the opportunities that a truffle industry offers Oregon and how to go about developing a premier industry, one that is characterized by high-quality products, ethical business practices, environmentally responsible production, and widely accrued benefits.
NOTE: Last minute speaker change, Dan will be presenting Dave’s presentation as Dave became unavailable at the last minute. Thanks Dan!!
UPDATE: The current rough draft of the white paper presented at this meeting is available.
