15.-16.10.2022 Truffle Weekend

In Hotel Punkaharju, we will dive into the fascinating world of truffles with expert lectures, in the forest and on the plate. The specialty is a domestic wild truffle, whose best harvest season is right now. A head start on the weekend is taken already on Friday, October 14th, when Mikko ”Gunu”Karjalainen, Verneri Pohjola and Ville Herrala will serve top-level Finnish jazz in the hotel’s halls.

During the truffle weekend, we will go on a taste journey to the secret world of truffles with experts Kirsi Saloniemi and Maarit Liukolampi. There will be a thorough introduction to the secrets of truffles and a search for truffles with Lagotto dogs. Truffles are a part of gastronomic high culture and chef Mikko Lahtinen puts truffles on the plate.  During our truffle weekend, both domestic and foreign truffles are served for lunch and the weekend culminates in a multi-course truffle dinner. Also guidance on how to pair wines and truffles is given.

The exact program will be sent to the participants a couple of weeks before the event. The event starts on Saturday morning at 10:00 and ends on Sunday at 14:30
