Truffle Treasures was established in 2007 in the Goldfields Region of central Victoria using Holly Oak trees inoculated with Tuber melanosporum (the Perigord black truffle). Hosting truffle events since 2010 to provide the opportunity for people to experience the sight, texture, aroma and taste of earth's 'black gold' first hand, Truffle Treasures' aim is to bring people and truffles together, so that the enjoyment of this culinary delicacy can be widely shared.
