Join us on the Truffle Hunt

IMG_1804Hunting for truffles, Canberra style

Rug up for a wintery experience in the oak forest on Canberra’s only trufferie, and you’ll be rewarded with the jewels of the kitchen: truffles. Follow our team of truffle dogs as they sniff out prized black Perigord truffles. The exceptionally talented dogs roam amongst the 2,500 trees on the farm to find a piece of the ‘black magic’.

Once the perfect truffle is found, we head back into the warmth of the truffle shed to discover the secrets to using this highly prized delicacy. Chef Andrew Haskins of 3seeds Cooking School will prepare an exciting array of decadent dishes with matching local wines for you to try. Let the cooking demonstration inspire you to purchase your own truffle and begin creating magic at home.
