Truffle Season in Melbourne

There are but a few weeks left of decent truffle season, so the time is night to stock-up or simply go out and eat to your heart’s content.

Melbourne recently hosted the annual Truffle Melbourne festival, where truffle enthusiasts, growers, foodies and the plain curious gathered to celebrate all that’s good about the ugly dark brown fungus.

Early July saw the Centre in Ivanhoe transform into a gathering of all who hold truffles dear and put-on some of Australia’s biggest names in food.  The event hosted the likes of global cooking sensation Guy Grossi, renowned French truffle master Chef Philippe Mouchel leading the live demonstrations in an amazing art deco heritage venue.

Over two huge days, The Centre transformed into three levels of culinary heaven where the best of Australian truffles and their artisan food and drink partners were on display for all to see and taste.

Taste, hunt, learn … Truffle Melbourne is an experience not to be missed.
