The Truffle Festival – Canberra Region is the ultimate experience for food lovers in winter. 2018 marks the ten-year anniversary of the festival. Celebrating five years of involvement in the Canberra Region Truffle Festival, Westfield Belconnen and Westfield Woden will once again host their Truffle Market Days, showcasing the region’s finest truffles with a range of engaging demonstrations, experiences and tastings.

A festival highlight, this year’s Truffle Market Days will take place on 30th June at Westfield Woden and 28th July at Westfield Belconnen. Various chefs, experts and local retailers will appear in-centre, offering customers a unique opportunity to try truffles and experience the delicious delicacy in unique ways.

Westfield Woden will welcome the passionate and incredibly talented Paul West, who will host cooking demonstrations and truffle infusion workshops. The River Cottage Australia host will also be taking the time to meet and greet his fans throughout the day.

For their Market Day, Westfield Belconnen will welcome Elena Duggan, experienced chef and winner of Masterchef in 2016. Elena will be in-centre hosting cooking demonstrations, showcasing truffles throughout a range of delicious recipes.

In addition, the beloved local Pop Inn is bringing a Daring Paring to both Westfield Truffle Market Days, hosting a series of wine masterclasses, led by Kimberley Ohayon. Customers can experience pairings of elegant local wines with a mix of truffle infused cheeses and chocolates, celebrating the rich produce of the Canberra Region.

Customers can also look forward to a range of additional interactive experiences throughout both centres, including Meet The Truffle Growers & Wine Makers sessions, hosted by Genevieve Jacobs, pop up food stalls, retailer sampling and live music – plus plenty of entertainment for the kids.
