Ah the truffles! They’re elusive, exotic, unique – and shrouded in secrecy and mystique. But come this June, you’ll be able to learn all about the delights of this  mysterious delight including its history, folklore, stories and people at The Melbourne Truffle Festival. There’ll be all sorts of shows from masterchef demonstrations to decadent dinners and a mini festival at Prahran Market.
