Heading to the fabulous Petition Kitchen in the Perth CBD for a 7.30am breakfast hosted by Truffle Kerfuffle, the cold, dark windy weather couldn’t have stopped the spring in my step – I knew I was in for a treat!
Petition Kitchen is renowned for using only fresh local produce, but combined with Genuinely Southern Forests, the Menu for today’s Truffle Hunter’s Breakfast used only the highest quality produce from my old stomping ground, the South West towns & communities of Western Australia. So proud to see Nannup locals Southern Forests Honey on the menu!
Petition Kitchen Chef Jesse Blake prepared a delightful breakfast menu which only hinted at the fabulousness that he will dish up at the Truffle Hunter’s Breakfast at the Truffle Kerfuffle at Fonty’s Pool in Manjimup June 24-26 2016. All featuring the signature ingredient – truffle!
I was also lucky enough to meet Viva at the breakfast – a real life truffle dog – who was super gorgeous.
Handling a $500 truffle isn’t something you get to do everyday! The one I got to experience first hand weighs around 400g & is valued at about $500! No wonder they call this stuff black gold! The average truffle is about 30g, so this one is a beauty! It’s actually quite heavy & the smell is pretty full on…..
I’d love to go on one of the Truffle Hunts with the hunters & their dogs as they sniff out the third most expensive ingredient on the planet! This is just one of the amazing activities you can take part in at this year’s Truffle Kerfuffle.
