The World of Truffles, Melbourne

5 August 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Truffles have captured our imagination on for centuries. This treat of treats is black gold. Whether you want to grow your own or set up a business, this seminar introduces you to the mysterious truffle world. Black or white truffles? Oak or hazelnut host?

This seminar with Noel Fitzpatrick covers all aspects of truffle growing, including choosing the right site, soil type, host tree and truffle life-cycle. There will also be a discussion and demonstration of truffle cooking techniques with truffle devotee Susan Burns. Seminar concludes with afternoon tea and truffle tasting. You may also purchase fresh truffles at a discount on the day.

Noel Fitzpatrick is a well known truffle consultant, Victorian truffle farmer and Burnley graduate. Noel has spent time in France, Italy and Spain studying all aspects of truffle production on with European growers and mycologists.
