NZ Truffle Associations 2019 Conference!

“The Path to Success”

Peppers Clearwater Resort, Christchurch

Early Bird Bookings ENDS 30th June

For the first time ever, the conference will be held over 3 days – Friday 16 to Sunday 18 August 2019.  It’s shaping up to be inspiring, diverse in information, collegial and enthused!

On Friday, we will host a number of workshops covering

  • truffle biology with guest speaker Dr Greg Bonito (renown US mycologist) and our very own Dr Alexis Guerin-Laguette
  • cooking with truffles, a chef presentation and value add products, and;
  • new growers basics and revitalization/succession for your truffière.

On Saturday, our keynote speaker is Dr Greg Bonito.  Greg is an academic from Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources; a mycologist who moves around the world with enthusiasm and great gusto about all things truffle.  We are also thrilled to have Dr Ian Hall ONZM as a speaker during the weekend, and have other fantastic speakers lined up covering a wide range of topics.

The NZ Truffle Association AGM will be held on Saturday afternoon.

The conference dinner on Saturday evening will be at Peppers 🌶 in a wonderful setting (could be romantic, if you are happy to share the romance with truffles!).

Sunday will be a field trip to two producing truffières – one borchii and one Perigord black truffle – plus a trip to Plant and Food for more truffle and mushroom talk.
