The Truffle Festival – Canberra Region

Winter is here and truffles are back on the menu!

The Truffle Festival – Canberra Region is back with a program packed with decadent truffle dinners, workshops, truffle hunts, food and wine pairings, signature menus, cooking classes and chef demonstrations across ACT and Southern NSW until the end of the truffle season in mid-August.

“While truffles are available all over Australia, those grown in the Canberra Region are prized by chefs, providores and discerning foodies alike because the climate around Canberra almost perfectly matches the growing conditions of the famous French truffle region” said Festival President Dick Groot Obbink
