Madame Truffles winter shop will open Thursday 27th June 2013
The Madame sells Tasmanian, Western Australian, New South Wales and Victorian truffles. Only freshly harvested truffles will be sold in store each week. Truffles will range in size from the very small (10g) to the much bigger (200g). And remember – one small truffle can go a long way. The finer they are shaved, the further they will go.
Thursday & Friday 9am – 5pm Saturday 9am-3pm
Tasmania – $3/g; WA – $3.20/g; NSW – $3.40/g; Vic – $3.50/g (when available)
Price differences are based on quantity of harvest rather than quality as all truffles sold by Madame Truffles are graded extra or first class.
Truffle Slicers – $50
Truffle Butter (made with Myrtleford Butter Factory) – 125g – $28 25g – $5
Truffle Salt – $7.50/jar
Gift Cards – Whatever price you’d like! Please drop Madame an email to email@example.com if you’d like to purchase one.
Why a seasonal shop?
Madame Truffles loves Australian truffles. For 3 months every year she enjoys them whenever she can. Truffled scrambled eggs for breakfast, truffle & mushrooms on toast for lunch and shaved truffles on pasta for dinner, and much more besides.
Madame Truffles was surprised to find that others weren’t enjoying this delicacy like she was. After all, one little truffle goes a long way she thought. Given Australian truffles were being enjoyed by people around the world, they seemed somewhat inaccessible or peculiar to people in Australia.
And so her little seasonal shop was born. Designed to make it as easy as possible for people to learn about and enjoy the wonderful truffles from their own backyard. Well, not literally of course, but from truffieres in WA, Tasmania, NSW and beyond. All of them with their own distinctive aromas and tastes. So with her fine truffles and lovely recipes to boot, she hoped more and more people would enjoy the wonderful little truffles she loves so much.
