Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Councillor Juliet Arkwright has this morning congratulated Yelverton Truffles on the announcement that it has unearthed Australia’s largest recorded French Black Perigord Truffle at 1.172 kilos.

“Congratulations to Ted and Barbara Smith from Yelverton Truffles on their fabulous find,” Mayor Arkwright said.

“In only their third harvest year this is wonderful recognition for all their hard work and perseverance.”

Apart from its impressive size, the truffle is seemingly also free from defects with witnesses also reporting an excellent aroma.

Once news that the titanic truffle had surfaced, foodies across the nation soon began enquiring, however the giant truffle has since found a home close by at Bowral’s Centennial Vineyards Restaurant.

“This announcement is great news for Robertson, the truffle industry and food connoisseurs right across the Southern Highlands,” Mayor Arkwright continued.

“I have no doubt our Shire will soon be adding Truffle Capital of Australia to our already impressive resume!”
