This weekend is a long weekend in Australia and our public truffle hunt events commence on Saturday and continue each weekend till the close of the truffle season in early September. All of our events feature truffle tasting in some way. This years luncheon menu features as a first course:Tomato bisque with truffled coconut foam and rosemary croutons. While having your lunch you may also wish to have a glass of Macenmist's homemade gluhwein to accompany it.
Then its onto the main course which has two truffle features:the first being the cous cous which is coated in truffled butter and the second treasure is the Perigueux sauce —which is to die for!!
For the love of truffle and its flavour we endure adverse climatic conditions and venture out in snow, sleet, light rain and hopefully sunny days just to harvest these beauties. They may seem excessively expensive but if used correctly, your dollar goes a long way.
