Are you ready, Melbourne? Madame Truffles is opening her pop-up shop for the 2017 truffle season, bringing city folk black truffles sourced from Tasmania, Victoria, NSW and Western Australia. These 'gourmet mushrooms' will be available from June 15 until September 3 at the Madame's pop-up shop on Yarra Place.
As well as straight-up truffles, the shop has an array of truffle-infused goods for you to fill your pantry with. This year, they're stocking truffle and mushroom ravioli — the ultimate comfort food — along with truffle salt, truffle ice cream and truffle honey. This is made with extra grade black truffle and pure Australian honey from Victoria that's good enough to eat straight out of the jar. If you live in a sharehouse, you might want to hide this from your housemates.
Truffles sold in-store are harvested fresh each week, so you know you'll get that fresh truffle smell when you pull them out at dinner (or breakfast, for that matter).
The Madame Truffles pop-up shop is open 9am till 5pm, Thursday to Sunday.
