Truffle season has arrived! So now is the time to think up those amazing truffle dishes you’ve been dreaming about and get a cooking. The truffle Melbourne festival is on this weekend so you will be able to taste amazing truffle dishes and be inspired to whip up mouth-watering truffle dishes at home. Let’s face it truffles make everything a little bit better.

The fresh homemade pasta was cooked up with thinly sliced potato, sage, truffle and of course some shaved truffle on top. Looked amazing! I’ll definitely have to try to replicate this dish at home. That pasta….yum!

Turns out I have my own truffle pig at home, well he’s a truffle butter pig in this picture it seems.

I may have used the word truffle excessively in this post but it’s only to express my excitement for truffles. If you’re excited about truffles too then head to the truffle festival this weekend at Prahran market.

I heart the Truffle Melbourne Festival!
