Beginning on June 21st and running until early/mid August, the Canberra and Capital Region Truffle Festival celebrates the Perigord (black) variety which are harvested in the region. Tease your sense of taste and smell at one of the many dining experiences, cooking glasses, or purchase some black gold to take home and experiment in the kitchen yourself.
Throughout the festival (late June to early August) you can enjoy themed truffle degustations and truffle menus, truffle master classes, talks and cooking demonstrations. As the festival has continued to grow we now include a trail to the snow giving yet another way to experience truffles, as well as the work of renowned Canberra chefs.
This is where your hunt for Capital Country Truffles begins! Find out about all the Truffle farms and where and when the truffle hunts are taking place. All details are here and make sure you books soon to secure your place, and let the hunting begin.
