If you like truffles or just want to check out gourmands in Eugene, you might enjoy the marketplace at the Oregon Truffle Festival. All events but the Marketplace are sold out. It’s $15 to get in/$20 with a wine glass, and you’ll see demos and taste truffled products.

Lisa Helke, Professor and Sponberg Chair of Ethics, Department of Philosophy, Gustavus Adolphus College, and Co-editor, Food, Culture, and Society: An International Journal of Interdisciplinary Research

- Feb. 19-21. University of Oregon Food Justice Conference. This is a major interdisciplinary academic conference on food politics, featuring both local and national issues and speakers. There is also an art exhibition and a food fair. I’ll be writing more about these events soon, but urge you now to browse the program and save the dates!
