Inspired by European truffle celebrations, Truffle Melbourne Director and truffle grower Nigel Wood first introduced Melbourne to the world truffle festival stage in 2014. Three short years later we’re now the largest truffle festival weekend outside Europe! We celebrate Australia’s new found place as the fourth largest truffle growing nation- our aim is to demystify the truffle and bring you unique winter food and wine experiences.
During the winter black truffle season, we join truffle growers across the country, Australia’s best truffle chefs and the finest food and beverage producers to celebrate the delights of the truffle. Truffle Melbourne presents an event program unlike any other and last year 32,000 guests enjoyed one or more of our events.
Truffles are an accessible seasonal luxury and the perfect flavour enhancer for their food and drink companions. Everyone starts their truffle journey in a different place: a great truffled pizza, an exquisite truffle dish at a restaurant, experimenting at home with fresh truffle and truffled scrambled eggs for breakfast. We peel away the mystique and share truffle stories, secrets and tastes.
