Truffle Macadamias a hit at the (very wet) Mundaring Truffle Festival
Date Posted:3 August 2011
Fighting the wind and rain did not leave much time to snap photos (Moses would have been at home parting the waters, I'm sure) but the weekend was a good one despite the less desirable weather. I have learned that truffle aficionados are a hardy bunch, even this wild weather did not discourage them.
We were 'lucky' enough to have a water feature in front of our site, and the kids certainly had a ball sloshing and sploshing with determination through this minor obstacle on route to dog expo, searching AND finding truffles!
Our new Morish Truffle Macadamia, made especially for the festival, were an absolute hit. We even had to come back and collect extra supplies to feed the masses on Saturday night!
Other food offerings found at the festival looked scrumptious….Wood spit roasted loin of pork from Il Paiolo the pizza man… melt in the mouth. Hazel Nut and Truffle soup with crusty French stick by Jean Pierre Sanchez Boulangerie - an earthy winter warmer treat perfect for the day. Alain Fabrergues of the Loose Box in Mundaring offered a variety of tempting tasting plates, my favourite, Truffle pate infused with Courvoisier cognac.
….Well, I could just go on, but it would really work much better if you just join us next year and do the tantalising of the taste buds personally!!"
