How many events dedicated to truffles does one city need? The answer: as many as possible. With the Truffle Melbourne Festival jumping on over to the Queen Victoria Market this year, Prahran Market are upping the ante. Behold their Truffle & Charcuterie Celebration.
Mark July 9 in your diaries, as that's the day that delicious funghi and cured meat take over for six hours of eating fun. It's a match made and heaven — and, if you don't think that now, you will once you see just what's in store. Truffles with French Champagne, the world's best ham, hot truffled canapes, cooking demonstrations... with Sweet Greek, Maker & Monger, Naheda's Choice and Cleo's Deli just some of the places serving up bits and bites, the list goes on.
At a pop-up truffle market within the market, there'll be everything from truffled risotto with sauteed garlic thyme mushrooms to warm truffle-infused honey baclava to truffled goats cheese, plus a ticketed charcuterie experience that comes with a free glass of wine. And, there'll also be truffled chocolate waffle doughnuts, truffle brioche toasties, truffle mac 'n' cheese and winter black truffle ice-cream. Yep, it's going to be truffle-tastic.
