Some of the country's most popular chefs will be saying bonjour to Mundaring when they come to town for the annual truffle festival in July.
Guillaume Brahimi, Neil Perry (Rockpool), Alain Fabregues (Loose Box), Nino Zoccali (Pendolino) and Emmanuel Mollois (Choux Cafe) will be cooking up a storm to celebrate an ingredient so precious it is known as "black gold" or "black diamond": the truffle.
Rockpool Perth head chef Dan Masters and P'tite Ardoise Bistro chef-owner Xavier Pique will be at the Mundaring Truffle Festival on July 28 to 29 along with chefs Iain Lawless, Dan Sharpe, Sunny de Ocampo, Don Hancey, Herb Faust, Sophie Budd, Vincenzo Velletri, Bruno Securo and Marianne Kempf.
Junior MasterChef star Anna Gare also will be taking part in the festival, which last year attracted about 12,000 people.
Get set for a four-course cook-off of Olympic proportions when two teams of chefs - the West Aussies versus the French - compete in The Long Table Lunch in honour of the 2012 Olympic Games.
There is much to see and do - and, of course, eat - at this year's Mundaring Truffle Festival, so be sure to visit www.mundaringtrufflefestival.com.
