Start­ing the day on the right note

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

THE tick­eted events for the Truf­fle Ker­fuf­fle have al­ways been a ma­jor draw­card for fes­ti­val-go­ers and the break­fast be­ing held by Scott Bran­ni­gan is no dif­fer­ent.

Fre­man­tle’s Bread in Com­mon ex­ec­u­tive chef, Bran­ni­gan was last at the Truf­fle Ker­fuf­fle about “three to four years ago” and he is look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing.

“It’s nor­mally a very good event,” he said.

The Scott Bran­ni­gan Hunter’s Break­fast on June 23 is the first time he has done an event of its kind at the Truf­fle Ker­fuf­fle and he said he was look­ing for­ward to in­cor­po­rat­ing lo­cal black truf­fle in his dishes.

The four-course break­fast will in­clude in­gre­di­ents such as raw ca­cao and truf­fle honey, potato and smoked trout and dishes such as French toast.

“The pro­duce is good down here and we want to show off the in­gre­di­ents on the plate,” Mr Bran­ni­gan said.

“You don’t need too much fluff, the food speaks for it­self.”

The fo­cus on truf­fles will ex­tend to Bread in Com­mon, where they will hold a truf­fle din­ner this week.

Mr Bran­ni­gan said he was ex­cited to re­turn to the Truf­fle Ker­fuf­fle and he made sure he was not booked up so he could at­tend.

“It’s a great hon­our to be se­lected to host an event dur­ing the Truf­fle Ker­fuf­fle,” he said.

He said truf­fles were so spe­cial on the culi­nary scene be­cause they had a short sea­son and the fresher they were, the bet­ter they were.

“It’s grown in WA, which makes it bet­ter,” he said.

“Truf­fles are get­ting stronger on the culi­nary stage and they’re a lux­ury.”

In ad­di­tion to host­ing a break­fast on June 23, Mr Bran­ni­gan said he also hoped to at­tend a truf­fle hunt and maybe at­tend or hold a cooking demon­stra­tion.

“I’m pretty flex­i­ble if they want me to do a cooking demon­stra­tion, but if not, I’ll just con­tinue en­joy­ing the event,” he said.

Mr Bran­ni­gan also en­cour­aged peo­ple who missed out on get­ting to his event, to look into get­ting tick­ets to some­one else’s event.

“Sue Hutchins’ Sun­day break­fast should be great,” he said.

“Her cheese from The Shadow Wine Bar, with truf­fle, will be a win­ner.”
