Can't get enough of truffles?

Melbourne is serving up 2 truffle festivals this year to make up for the absence in 2020 due to the pandemic lockdowns.

10 & 11 July - Queen Victoria Market

Head over to Queen Victoria Market for the Truffle Melbourne Festival. This weekend event was a roaring success in 2019, drawing a wide range of purveyors and artisans of black truffles to showcase their wares.

This year's program looks to be equally robust with fresh truffles brought in from all over Australia. Highlights include:

Mock truffle dog hunts featuring Spice and Arrow along with their siblings from Brimfeldt Australian Shepherds in Shed A at 10:00am, 11:30am, 1:00pm and 2:30pm.

Ready-to-eat truffle dishes from That's Amore Cheese, Twisted Mac, Frencheese, Simply Spanish, Primo Street Pizza Co. and Crepe-Oohlicious.

Fresh truffle and artisanal produce including sauces, pastes and oils from Truffle Melbourne, La Truffiere, A Taste of Paris, Carramar Truffles, Trufficulture and Black Cat Truffles.

The event is on Saturday 10 July, 9am - 6pm and Sunday 11 July, 9am - 4pm K - L Sheds (Peel Street end). Visit the website for more information.

24 July - Prahran Market Truffle Celebration

Prahran Market celebrates the black truffle season with its own celebration. Highlights include:

Limited edition truffle treats on sale from the Market Traders including Truffled cacio e pepe (pasta from the parmesan wheel) and Truffled Brioche from Maker & Monger; Truffled Eggs (by the half dozen or dozen) and Truffled Butter from Damian Pike Wild Mushroom Specialist; Bacon and egg truffled pies from Damian Pike X Stir the Pot; and Truffle, veal and mushroom sausages from Gary's Quality Meats.

Cooking demos in the Prahran Market Demonstration kitchen by legends Tobie Puttock, Darren Purchese, and the Market's resident Mushroom Man, Damian Pike. Click here to book your free sessions.

Truffle Trails - an exclusive, ticketed experience where punters will follow a trail around the Market, stopping to pick up delicious truffle products to eat on the day or take home from participating Traders. There are 3 to choose from ranging from $35.50 to $65.50 per person.

The event is from 11am to 5pm throughout Prahran Market. Visit the website for more details and bookings.

Never tried truffles, Lionel. They don't look very appetising. Feel free to try some on my behalf.
