Uzes (30 Gard, Occitanie) hosts its annual Truffle Festival usually on the third Sunday of January. 19 January 2020. This is another of those towns which tends to get missed by many travellers, but a detour up into the Cevennes (north of Nimes, west of Avignon) can be well worthwhile – even in winter if you are a truffle fan. In the appropriately named “Place aux Herbes” from 09h00 to 17h30 you can celebrate the truffle by buying, tasting or learning about the tuber and how to cook with it. The local wine (Vin de Pays Duché d’Uzès) is also on hand to assist digestion and enjoyment.
