The Asheville Truffle Experience is underway this weekend, Feb. 20-22, giving local foodies a chance to taste and learn about the celebrated Tuber melanosporum.

The three-day festival includes a truffle growers’ forum with experts from as far away as France and Oregon, a culinary demonstration by A-B Tech chef instructors, a wine-paired, five-course truffle dinner at The Market Place restaurant and an excursion to the Mountain Research Station truffle orchard in Waynesville.
