Established in 2014, each season Truffle Melbourne's winter events program attracts dedicated foodies and the curious to its 50+ events program and is now the largest truffle festival weekend outside Europe! Our big 2018 free weekend festival is on 16 & 17 June this year at Queen Victoria Market. Our 2018 Dining Program is the strongest ever and participating in one of our regional truffle hunts is an unforgettable experience - one for the bucket list!
In 2017 we became Melbourne's only CBD specialist fresh truffle and truffle products retailer with our Pop Up and online stores featuring fresh truffles and truffle products from Australia and around the world. Our 260 Collins Street Pop Up will opens on 22 May this year and our online store runs year round.
Because Melbourne loves truffles so much, this year we'll also introduce you to some unique and affordable truffle products to enjoy at home. Our new range is named after our truffle farm, Truffle Paddock, and will be available instore and online in May.
Our founder, truffle grower and truffle judge Nigel Wood says "our aim is to democratise and demystify the truffle - and to bring you unique winter food and wine experiences which celebrate Australia as the world's 4th largest truffle growing nation." He also writes a regular blog on growing truffles, working with chefs and artisan producers, truffle news from around the world and using truffles and truffle products in the home kitchen.
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 in truffled scrambled eggs for breakfast. We peel away the mystique and share truffle stories, secrets and tastes.
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 showcases the best fresh truffles and truffle products to delight you.
