Truffle Melbourne 2019 Dining Program

We support Dining Program events throughout the winter truffle season. In 2019 we're again inviting chefs, restaurateurs, venue managers and others with a passion for truffles to propose events for inclusion in the 2019 Truffle Melbourne Dining Program.

Potential dining events may include truffle themed lunches, dinners; roof-top parties; pop-ups at unusual venues; Masterclasses 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. This audience covers all price points- from $250 pp 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.

How does it work?

You can express interest in joining our program online by completing the form below or by contacting us on Our fee structure is simple, making participation affordable and accessible.The cost to join the Program is $500 (plus GST) - the cost of 3 or 4 covers to your event. 

We can also arrange for Festival Director Nigel Wood to personally host your event or for Truffle Dogs to perform mock hunts at your event. The cost of either of these options is $150 (plus GST), if available. These need to be booked well in advance to be secured, as both Nigel and the dogs are flat out during the season!

What are the benefits?

We help you fill your venue when you otherwise wouldn't. We stagger the dates in our program and support each included event through a strong web based and social media & conventional PR campaign. Other benefits include:
