Get ready for a feast of truffles, entertainment and celebrity chefs. This year’s Truffle Festival kicks off tomorrow, 21 June.
Over 60 participating venues will be celebrating the local Black Truffle harvest with events ranging from gourmet degustation dinners, casual dishes at cafes and patisseries, wine and beer tastings, cooking classes and truffle hunts.
Festival patron and international celebrity chef Antonio Carluccio will be attending various events in late July, and favourite former MasterChef contestants are offering a range of truffle masterclasses.
The RiotACT will be reviewing many of the events during the festival – so watch this space!
