The Gotland Truffle Festival 2017

We repeat our success from last year with a full weekend dedicated to truffles! The Gotland Truffle Festival will take place on 17th-19th November 2017 on Gotland!

The Gotland Truffle Festival will focus on the Gotlandic truffle. We can offer seminars on truffles, a truffle market, a truffle ceremony and truffles in many different dishes. In order to create as great a diversity as possible in the truffle dishes, many different chefs at restaurants with different specialities will offer truffle-after-work or truffle menus.

Join us in a fantastic truffle festival!

In the afternoon of Friday 17th November, you can learn more about truffles and purchase truffles and truffle products at the truffle market in the shopping arcade at Östercentrum, just outside the East Gate. Demonstrations of truffle hunts will take place at 2 p.m. alongside the east face of the town wall (Östergravar). For cultivation enthusiasts a course in truffle cultivation will make a ‘false start’ on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. The course is held in english. On Friday evening you can go on a pub crawl and explore different concepts of running a truffle-after-work. Several restaurants will be offering truffle menus throughout the entire weekend.

Saturday marks the day of celebration for the Truffle Academy, beginning with seminars at Donnerska huset on truffle in cooking and the cultivation of truffle (trufficulture). This will be followed by an atmospheric and interesting truffle ceremony at the Cathedral with beautiful choir singing and entertainment, crowned by the official proclamation of this year’s Truffle Chef (still a secret who it is). Celebrations continue with a six-course gourmet banquet with truffle in all dishes and accompanying wine matches at the Clarion Hotel Wisby. The food will be prepared by the elite among chefs associated with the Kulinariska Gotland organisation.

Sunday 19 November: The restaurant Smakrike krog och logi will serve a truffle brunch in Ljugarn. Truffle hunts will also be arranged at different locations on Gotland, including Ljugarn, Roma and Rute.
