A dinner designed around a culinary delicacy certainly makes winter a little easier to digest.
With this in mind, Borrodell Winery will host its annual black tie five-course truffle degustation on June 30.
The quirky event sees guests don their best suits, dresses and gum-boots to search for truffles, before retiring to a five-course truffle degustation in an underground wine cellar.
The meal will be prepared by head chef Richard Learmonth and will be served with matched vintage wines from Borrodell.
Owner Borry Gartrell said the annual truffle hunt attracts both inner-city foodies and locals looking to enjoy an afternoon and evening of delicious food and great music.
“It’s been a magnificent season for the truffles so we’re expecting some competition for the finder of the Black Wasabi truffle this year,” he said.
“There’s no other event like it so we encourage everyone to come up to Borrodell and experience this evening first hand.”
The event runs from 4pm until 10.30pm.
