Fabulous Food at Fungi Feastival

The future is fungi and the future of food is fungi-fueled. The Fungi Feastival is promoting the taste sensation of ‘Fungi on the Menu’ from 16 June to 16 July at restaurants, cafes and eateries from Batemans Bay to Eden. Mushrooms and truffles are enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians, omnivores and especially ‘foodies’, in a wide range of dishes from cheese to icecream, pasta to pizza, and ragu to risotto.

Celebrate fungi food at the Fungi Feastival with one of four amazing fungi themed dinners. Starting at Florabel in Eden hosting a Truffle and Mushroom Tapas night on Saturday 24 June. Florabel’s mouth-watering menu includes mushroom, brie and burnt sage bruschetta; mushroom gyozas; truffle infused Spanish tortilla; garlic beans with truffle salt; mushroom vol-au-vent with shaved truffle; and truffle cheesecake.
