A fascinating and delicious trip to the countryside in mid-winter, donning beanies, scarves and boots to unearth the worlds most expensive food ingredient.

This will be the first time Matters of Taste have run a tour dedicated to truffles, and it’s fully immersive. Time to switch off and allow yourself to become fully absorbed in each unique experience.

The Season

Still winter days in the Southern Forests lend a magic feeling to the towering Karri stands.

The land slows and takes a rest, returning its’ energy to the soil. Grass is lush and green from rainfall, rich in nutrients.

In the trufferie’s, the oaks and hazelnuts have long shed their leaves. At the epicentre of Manjimup’s truffle region, winter is the season for treasures to be unearthed from underground.

The Food

We’ll get you in front of the best truffle educators! You’ll even have an opportunity to taste fresh truffle from two different properties in a very special pre-dinner presentation.

One of our favourite Southern Forests chefs has designed a country dinner just for us, of course featuring truffle. Around the candlelight table, be wowed with clever flavour pairings and enjoy premium wines to match the dishes.

This is a slow relaxed affair with time to savour each mouthful. 

 

The People

At this time of year, perhaps enjoying even more status than people are the truffle dogs. Without their noses, locating the black gold would be a laborious job.

The people though, are the ones who generously impart their knowledge and expertise.

We are so excited you’ll get to meet two people who are in the business of not only growing truffles, but assisting others to set up trufferies, inoculating trees on properties and passing on all their years of learning.
