Straight To The Source bring you their exclusive ‘Diggin’ for Diamonds’ black Perigord truffle hunts to the NSW Southern Highlands this winter.
‘There are few things in this world that send your brain into meltdown quicker than the aroma of fresh truffles. It’s the awe you feel in the presence of a rare and precious diamond, once hidden under the earth but now yours to enjoy.’
– Christopher Thé, Patissier & Owner, Black Star Pastry
Departing from Black Star Pastry in Rosebery we will travel south to Biota Dining in Bowral for morning tea and a kitchen garden tour before heading to Yelverton Truffles, where a record-breaking 1172g truffle was unearthed in 2014, and another beauty, weighing-in at 966g, was dug up in 2015. Not only will you experience the thrill of a truffle hunt alongside specially trained dogs, you will also be treated to an exclusive cooking demonstration by renowned Black Star Pastry owner and patissier, Christopher Thé.
This will be followed by a truffle-laden lunch, where fresh black Perigord truffles will feature in abundance including shaved over piping hot soup, truffle quiche and a spectacular truffle-inspired dessert – a feast for the senses! Lunch will be matched with wine tastings from local Tertini Winery. Fresh black Perigord truffles and truffle products will be available for purchase direct from the farmgate.
