Held in the most prolific truffle growing region in the Southern Hemisphere, the festival is a true celebration of Manjimup’s prized black truffles, sought-after by chefs across the globe for their consistent high quality, impossible-to-describe taste and heady, earthy aroma.
The stellar line up of culinary talent heading to the Southern Forests region includes Pete Evans, Poh, Anna Gare, Nic Wood, Aaron Carr, Russell Blaikie, Tony Howell, Paul Iskov, Scott Brannigan, Melissa Palinkas, Amy Hamilton, Sophie Budd along with chefs from revered eateries Mary Street Bakery and Tiny’s.
Headlining this year is one of Australia’s most recognisable chefs, Pete Evans, a restaurateur, author of 20 books on healthy cooking and lifestyle, health coach, television presenter and a judge on long-running hit television show MKR. His passion for food and a healthy lifestyle inspires individuals and families around the world and he is looking forward to showcasing the exceptional Southern Forests produce at Truffle Kerfuffle.
“I am stoked to be able to come and spend the weekend at Truffle Kerfuffle and explore the Southern Forests region,” Evans said.
“I’m especially excited to cook with Manjimup truffles. Truffles are so amazing and unique, the taste and perfume they add to a dish is incredible, there’s good reason why they are a much-loved ingredient.
“Fresh local produce grown and raised with love and care is really what excites me about food and I cannot wait to try some of the region’s stand out ingredients.”
