Win the Ultimate Truffle Experience for Two!

How would you like to win a weekend for two enjoying the best of The Truffle Festival: Canberra and Capital Region? Read on for your chance to indulge in a Winter escape complete with all the trimmings to experience the amazing world of truffles.

You might have noticed that everyone's gone a bit crazy over truffles of late. Well, that’s because of two very good reasons.

1. The Truffle Festival: Canberra and Capital region continues to go from strength to strength, engaging some of the best local restaurants and retailers in promoting our exceptional truffle industry.

2. Truffles are really, really delicious!

There is one small problem, though: truffles intimidate a lot of people. It’s easy to understand why – the little black, pungent balls of fungus may not initially appear appetising, but the secret to truffles is not what they represent on their own, but what they can do to another dish.

For those of you lucky enough to have fallen in love with truffles, there would have been a moment of clarity; a time where the shavings or oil of truffle brought a new dimension to a dish and forever converted you to an appreciation of this simple delicacy.

This is what we want you to tell us. What was the moment where the winter fog lifted and revealed a world of flavour? That the true value of truffles is not in their cost, but in their ability to change the way we think about many of the foods we already enjoy.

So, simply go to the Truffle Festival Facebook Pageand tell us about the moment when you fell in love with truffles. Upload a photo or image to accompany your entry and you can go in the draw to win the Ultimate Truffle Getaway on the weekend of 8 and 9 August. The fabulous prize includes:

• Two nights weekend accommodation for two at Novotel Canberra in a Standard Queen Room, including buffet breakfast.

• Weekend car hire courtesy of Europcar

• Mt Majura Truffle Experience for two adults, incorporating a truffle hunt for two people at French Black Truffles of Canberra, and a wine tasting with truffled brie at Mount Majura Vineyard, and

• Lunch for two at Pod Food.
