There's so much planned for Manjimup's Truffle Kerfuffle that there's not much room for anything else.

Running from June 25-27, the decadent weekend festival in Western Australia features exquisite dining events, masterclasses, truffle hunts, markets and more.

One of the most decadent winter festivals in Western Australia, the 10th annual Truffle Kerfuffle will be a celebration of Manjimup's prized black truffles, sought after by chefs across the globe for their consistent high quality, impossible-to-describe taste, and heady, earthy aroma.

Chef and restauranter Guillaume Brahimi will present the festival's first dining event, a long table rustic feast for the senses featuring the best Southern Forests seasonal produce, beautiful wine, and generous amounts of fresh black truffle in celebration of the winter solstice.

"What better way to spend a winter weekend than celebrating and hunting for world class Australian black truffles," said French-born chef Guillaume Brahimi.

"The Australian truffle industry has been a big contributor on the culinary scene, and I am excited to be showcasing them."

Joining Brahimi will be renowned chef Analiese Gregory, former executive chef of Franklin in Hobart.

At the Wild Things dinner on the Saturday night, named in tribute to her cookbook How wild things are, Gregory will create a memorable dining experience of slow food and story, on cooking, fishing and hunting at the bottom of the world. Her menu will pay homage to black truffles paired with matched wines.

Those wanting to get to know truffles better, can attend the intimate Chef's Cabin masterclass sessions that combine learning with tasting in a small group setting.

There are six masterclasses, each run by an awarded chef, including former chef now truffle farmer David Coomer, and Le Rebelle's Liam Atkinson.

With good food, comes good wine. State Buildings sommelier and wine expert Emma Farrelly will curate the wine program and run the Wine Shed sessions that include up to six tastings of some of the best regional wine.

There will also be truffle dog demonstrations and truffle hunts, free cooking demonstrations, free kids' cooking classes, beer masterclasses and spirit tastings, an undercover Marketplace where you can meet local farmers, producers and winemakers
