Aussie truffle season is here for a good time, not a long time, so you want to really squeeze the most out of it. And from Friday, August 12 to Sunday, August 14, that means heading out to Spotswood to feast your way through Grazeland's inaugural Truffle Festival.

The huge food precinct is plating up a decadent weekend of funghi appreciation with a bunch of vendors whipping up limited-edition truffle dishes just for the occasion.

As always, it's a globe-trotting lineup — think shaved truffle sprinkled atop hot chip cones and inside toasties from Fat Tonys, Lucky Little Dumpling's black truffle xiao long bao, truffled raclette courtesy of Frencheese, and truffle cheese bratwurst rolls from Bratboy.

48H Pizza will be doing a sausage, truffle and wild mushroom number, while Claw & Tail gives seared scallops the truffle butter treatment. Even dessert is a truffled affair, with the likes of Doughville's dreamy custard-filled croissant collaboration with Pierrick Boyer; and ricotta cannoli stuffed with black truffle and dark chocolate chip from Cannoleria.

Meanwhile, both of Grazeland's stages will be dishing up the live tunes across the weekend and you'll find a huge array of sips pouring at its many pop-up bars.


The Truffle Festival will run over the weekend of August 12 to August 14 at 5–10pm Friday,  12–10pm Saturday and 12–9pm Sunday.
