With the Truffle Kerfuffle now less than a month away, many chefs are preparing to head south for the event. Among this group is health coach, chef and My Kitchen Rules presenter Pete Evans, who said he was looking forward to visiting Manjimup for the first time.

“I am looking forward to exploring the region and meeting the locals and people who will be attending the event,” he said.

“I am a truffle lover and I love using them when they are in season, I haven’t used Manjimup truffles yet which is why I am super keen to do this event as I know they are some of the best in the world.”

He said he loved to use truffles with eggs, meat, seafood, vegetables and desserts.

“They really are very versatile and I am excited to create some recipes using them and sharing them with the audience,” Evans said.

Evans will be hosting several events at the Truffle Kerfuffle this year; the Enchanted Southern Forests Feast, a master-class, a demonstration on winning kitchen appliances on the main stage and the Wholesome Sunday Brunch.

“Event-goers can expect a lot of laughs, good times and of course great food and conversation,” Evans said. “Fresh local produce grown and raised with love and care is really what excites me about food and I cannot wait to try some of the region’s stand out ingredients.”
