Best Truffle products Black Truffle Celebration Day


11am - 3pm


Omega and Neil Perry Kitchen




We are excited to announce that Prahran Market will play host to a Truffle Celebration Day event on Sunday 8 July!

Australia’s foremost truffle specialists, Friend & Burrell and our very own Damian ‘The Mushroom Man’ Pike have assembled some of Melbourne’s best chefs to showcase the Black Truffle in a series of demonstrations.

Everyone has heard of truffles – some people eat them regularly while for others they are an elusive ingredient, only for the rich and famous.

At the event, you can find out everything you ever wanted to know about truffles with the opportunity to speak to growers and experts. You will also discover that they are more accessible and affordable than many people think!

For some inspiration, head to the Omega and Neil Perry Kitchen between 11am-3pm and you can see delicious truffle dishes being cooked up by:

  • 11 am Daniel Giraldo Head Chef Maha Restaurant – Blackmore’s beef cheek, smoked celeriac, shiitake jam, brassicas and black truffle
  • Noon: Matthew Butcher Executive Chef Shilo: roasted pine mushrooms, truffle salsa, pickled golden raisins finished with Jerusalem artichoke veloute, crisps & sourgrass
  • 12.45pm: Dani Valent cook, author, restaurant reviewer, radio & tv presenter: mushroom cappuccino (an Alain Chapel classic) with bitter leaves and truffle
  • 1.15pm: Andy Harmer Head Chef of QT Melbourne – truffle linguini with Jamon fat & enoki floss
  • 2 pm: Steve Nairn Head Chef of ESP by Scott Pickett – enhancing your Sunday roast with black truffles: roast chicken with black truffle jus
