Anna and Jordan Bruno, who rose to fame in the 2016 series of My Kitchen Rules, have confirmed they will be part of the new Manjimup Truffle and Wine Festival.
They are holding a truffle and pasta masterclass at the historic Dingup House from 11.30am to 2.30pm, June 25.
The mother-and-son culinary team will guide participants on how to create homemade pasta, truffle fettuccine and truffle ravioli from scratch.
After the hands-on masterclass, a three-course meal will be served with a complimentary truffle cocktail featuring:
- Entrée: truffle and wild mushroom risotto with seared scallops.
- Mains: pork and truffle ravioli, braised beef cheeks with truffle mash, green beans with lemon and garlic and pan-fried local vegetables.
- Dessert: lumberjack cake with truffle custard.
“Growing up I can remember being in awe of chefs like Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver and Anthony Bourdain who had such an ability to connect and inspire people through food,” Jordan said.
“There was no doubt in my mind that this passion to inspire and feed people was distilled in me too and it was exactly what I was going to spend my life doing.
“Luckily, my beautiful Mama just happened to be one of the most talented cooks this planet has ever seen, so cooking was in my blood and eating was something I had become extensively good at, too.
“From the age of 12, I would study my Mama and Grandma in the kitchen, idolising every smell, bowl-lick and family dinner.
“Food became my love language and it’s still how I show love today.”
