This is a sponsored post by Braidwood Central School. More on my disclosure policy.
Braidwood Central School is hosting "Truffle Central" this weekend from 25-26 June 2016. This event combines the science and flavours of truffles. The truffles have been provided by the Marshall family of Terra Preta Truffles and the event would not be possible without them. Visitors will experience truffles in many ways and all proceeds go to Braidwood Central School.
10-3pm in the Braidwood Central school gym there will be delicious truffled foods prepared by Chef Christian Hauberg & BCS students. Try truffled soups with a Dojo bun, sweet treats, truffled popcorn and truffled scrambled eggs will be available all day.
Fungi focussed lectures:
· 11am Mycologist Todd Elliot and Professor Jim Trappe will discuss how truffles and small animals have shaped Australian history
· 1pm Associate Profesor Karl Vernes will speak on the topic of "How do native mammals find truffles, and what do they do with them?”
· 2pm Professor Jim Trappe will speak about truffles and indigenous people of the world.
