Prahran Market will play host to the Ultimate Truffle Celebration Day on Sunday 8 July to celebrate Australia’s Winter Truffle season.
Organised by Australia’s foremost truffle specialists, Friend & Burrell and Prahran Market’s very own Damian ‘The Mushroom Man’ Pike, the event will explore the delights of Tuber Melanosporum – The Black Truffle – through a series of demonstrations by some of Melbourne’s best chefs.
The free event will centre around the Omega and Neil Perry Kitchen, where demonstrations will be held to create a series of exciting dishes to whet guests’ appetites. Experts, including renowned truffle grower Peter Marshall, will be on hand to answer questions about this mysterious, yet surprisingly accessible food.
- Steven Nairn – Chef, Scott Pickett Group

Prahran Market’s traders will be joining in the celebration by selling truffle based products and dishes created especially for the occasion including truffle oil, eggs, scallops, tapenade, mustard and even ice cream!
Of course, visitors can visit Damian Pike Mushrooms and get some truffles to take home so they can put into practice what they’ve learnt and impress their friends and family with this unique ingredient.
