Fête de la Truffe 2020

Created at the initiative of the Grouping of Truffle Producers of Périgord Noir and the city of Sarlat, the Truffle Festival has become a key event in the region. This festival dedicated to truffles is held every year in mid-January in Sarlat.

Many activities are offered throughout the weekend such as truffle identification workshops, conferences, demonstrations, and a large market allowing the public to meet truffle farmers and buy fresh truffles. or truffle products.

The main restaurants of the city are found on the Place de la Liberté to offer tastings of "Croustous", a kind of Périgourdin tapas with truffle and foie gras. A taste experience high in flavors! The Sarladais chefs also offer cooking demonstrations and culinary courses to learn how to cook Périgord's gastronomic products.

Alongside the event is the Jean Rougié Trophy, a cooking competition that rewards the best professional cooking students, students in BTS in CFA from all over France. Candidates must make a recipe based on foie gras and black truffle from Périgord. After a selection on record, the eight finalists compete for the title around two dishes to prepare.
