Truffle Hunt and luncheon
August 31 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Saturday, repeating until 01/09/2019
Situated 8km from the village of Bredbo in the Snowy Monaro region, Macenmist Black Truffles and Wines offers you the chance to explore the hidden delights of the Perigord black truffle. Come and join the team at Macenmist where you will be able to experience something exciting and unique.
Frosty winter mornings herald the ripening of the underground truffles and visitors are encouraged to rug-up and venture out with the truffle dogs as they hunt for the elusive black gold.
When a truffle is found it is extracted from its subterranean home in true archaeological-style using small tools and brushes. After the hunt it’s back to the truffle shed to warm up while partaking of refreshments and indulging in truffle tasting, lore and mystic.
Then if that’s not enough… stay for a rustic truffle luncheon OR for those wanting to indulge themselves with more truffle, experience the all-day event where Chef John’s eclectic and innovative truffle food will tantalize your taste-buds.
