The National Truffle Fest (NTF) is a unique experience dedicated to celebrate and promote the growing truffle industry in the United States. Our focus is on the black, French "Perigord" truffle that is now produced domestically; however, we do try to incorporate other truffle varieties as well. The Frankie Lemmon Foundation provides much needed assistance – ensuring the availability of therapeutic, specialized education for children, ages 3 to 6, who have developmental delays, language impairments, learning disabilities or mental retardation. All proceeds generated from the 2010 National Truffle Fest be given to the Frankie Lemmon Foundation. This decadent weekend takes place in the rustic beauty of the Grand Bohemian Hotel and pairs some of Asheville's most highly-acclaimed restaurants with outstanding winemakers for a weekend of unforgettable dining. Guests will indulge in samplings of the French Perigord truffle, rub shoulders with award-winning chefs, enjoy exquisite wines, cooking demonstrations and even a truffle-dog hunting course.
