Truffle Melbourne Dining Program

We create and manage events throughout the winter truffle season. In 2018 we're again inviting chefs, restaurateurs, venue managers and others with a passion for truffles to propose events for inclusion in the 2018 Events Program.

Potential Dining events may include truffle themed lunches, dinners; product releases; roof-top parties; pop-ups at unusual venues; Masterclasses or competition events or event packages linked with other experiences. The only limit is your imagination! We have an engaged audience that is looking for special truffle experiences. And this audience covers all price points- from $350 high-end dinners to a $25 truffle taste and drink. Most events last year were a sell-out, and all reached their minimum target guest numbers.

This season, in partnership with Stonebarn Truffles and Premier Foods, you’ll have access to quality WA truffles and innovative new food service truffle products when you join the program.

Truffle Melbourne's fee structure is fair, transparent and simple- making participation affordable and accessible.There are three ways for you to join the program- either with a specific truffle event; by joining our “Truffle on the Menu” program throughout the winter season; or a combination of the two. 

The cost of either option 1 or 2 is around the cost of 2 covers – Option 1 is $295 and Option 2, $165 (+GST) and there's an optional extra including Festival Founder and truffle grower Nigel Wood "hosting" your event, with a lively "Truffle Q&A and prize give away session. The Option 3 cost is $395 (+ GST), giving you a specific event plus coverage right through the 4 months of winter.
