Prahran Market Truffle Celebration — CANCELLED
This food festival's Truffle Trail will send you adventuring through the market to scout out exclusive truffle-infused creations.
Lockdown 5.0 might have hampered your annual truffle-hunting efforts, but you can make up for that with a visit to Prahran Market this weekend. Saturday, August 7, marks the return of the precinct's ever-popular Truffle Celebration and Truffle Trail, dishing up an indulgent day of chef demonstrations, market stalls and specialty truffle-infused eats.
Two different food 'trails' will send punters adventuring through the market, sampling various truffle dishes and collecting take-home goodies along the way. The $35.50 option includes bites like Farini's truffled mushroom pizza and a savoury black truffle mille-feuille from The Food House Deli, while the $40.50 trail stars the likes of truffle-topped Hervey Bay scallops and Stir The Pot's truffled chicken petite pie. Fritz Gelato's even got dessert covered, scooping a double cream black truffle ice cream for the occasion.
Meanwhile, chefs including Tobie Puttock and Joe Vargetto (Mister Bianco) will be hitting the truffle demonstration kitchen to share some of their secrets. The free sessions are currently full, but you can join the waitlist here. Plus, some of the market's favourite traders will be serving more limited-edition truffle-inspired creations — from specialty sausages to truffled bacon and egg pies.
