Truffes a la Ferme 2017
Truffle Hunt – Farm Tour – Cooking Masterclass – Sumptuous Truffle Luncheon
The return of our hugely successful truffle day of indulgence.
The perfect way to explore the mystique of the Perigord Black Truffle and discover why it is known by gourmets as the ‘black diamond’ of fine dining.
On arrival, guests will be greeted with a perfectly prepared Wongarra farm egg with truffle before joining a truffle hunt, participating in a master class on truffle cookery by Michelin-starred French chef and truffle expert Romuald Oudeyer which will showcase the full range of truffle flavours from the savoury to the sweet and go on a tour of the regenerative farming processes being undertaken at Wongarra Farm. This will culminate in a multi-course luncheon and tastings of food prepared by Romuald throughout the day. Guests will be able to purchase truffles and will receive a complimentary recipe book of the dishes prepared and served throughout the day.
Date: Saturday June 17th
Time: 11am to 4pm
Cost: $250 per head, places strictly limite
