WAGFG’s Truffles Unearthed presented by Truffle Hill series returns from 22 June to late August, after sell-out programs in 2019 and 2021.
Dive into truffle season with 10 weeks of dining experiences in Perth and the South-West and enjoy fun, one-off menu items and immersive cooking demonstrations with WA’s top chefs at Winning Appliances and the WA Good Food Guide Cooking School at European Concepts.
Optus Stadium will launch Truffles Unearthed in style on Wednesday 22 June with a six-course feast at the Victory Lounge, which will be transformed into a ‘pop-up’ restaurant with in-house DJ for the night. Western Australian produce will take centre stage at our season’s curtain raiser headed by executive chef Jochen Beranek; think truffled lobster, truffle-infused gin and dishes such as Glacier 51 toothfish with a crayfish dumpling, roast chicken jus and morels. Tickets are selling fast so book here to secure your seat!
On Tuesday 12 July, a collaboration for the ages will come to life at Rockpool Bar and Grill as Vue De Monde executive chef Hugh Allen flies over from Melbourne to join chef Brendan Owens’ team for one night only at an exclusive and indulgent truffle affair.
Linger over a long lunch at Leederville’s Will Street on Thursday 4 August with an inventive menu by chef Will Meyrick, which will be released in the coming weeks. Secure your seat at one of the hardest-to-get-into new restaurants of 2022!
On Saturday 6 August we return to a favourite of the series as WAGFG’s 2021 Restaurant of the Year, Vasse Felix and 2021 Regional Chef of the Year, Brendan Pratt renew their seasonal love of Manjimup’s black gold in a dinner hosted by WAGFG’s Georgia Moore and chief Vasse winemaker Virginia Willcock.
Staying in Perth for the weekend? Parisian-style wine bar, Vincent Wine, pays homage to the iconic black truffle with special menu items including a truffled-up take on their famous charcuterie, available from Saturday 6 August to Sunday 7 August. Wine and truffles: the perfect winter pairing and the ultimate weekend dining experience, with tunes to match.
Truffles Unearthed then heads to the iconic heart of the city at Cathedral Square’s State Buildings for a night to remember at Post, hosted by WAGFG’s WA Editor, Max Brearley. Join us on Thursday 11 August at the Italian osteria where a menu inspired by European simplicity is executed by executive chef Kim Brennan with wines by WAGFG wine judge and State Buildings sommelier Emma Farrelly.
Next, it’s time to party at Indigo Oscar for a truffle-season finisher by the beach. Tom Haynes and the Indigo Oscar team are set to bring the good times with a Latin American-style truffle cocktail party on Sunday 21 August. Soak up the good times with Indigo Oscar’s truffle cocktails, an Akoya oyster bar and a sublime truffle snack menu available throughout the night. Indigo Oscar will also be showcasing truffles across the entire Truffles Unearthed Dining Series season with a Latin American-style truffle menu, truffle cocktails and Truffle Hill products available to purchase.
