Following a morning truffle hunt at Red Hill Truffles, meet French chef and truffle expert Romuald. Romus experience with truffles comes from his time at the Michelin Star Parisian restaurant La Truffire, and since moving to Australia he has worked for both Jacques Reymond and Frank Camora.
Join us to celebrate the triumph of the truffle, with an afternoon hunt, degustation dinner in Doot Doot Doot, and night enjoying Jackalope's luxury accommodation. The hunt, dinner and digs can be booked as a package or individually.
Come and experience the thrill of finding a truffle, black gold. Truffle season starts June when the air is cold, the soil moist and the sun is warming the rich earth at Red Hill.
Steak nights are back at Trofeo Estate! Every Friday and Saturday night in June enjoy a glass of Trofeo Estate wine and grass fed sirlion fillet for $35
Have you ever been to a restaurant where every single pasta on the menu is ridiculously good? Del Posto 2409 is the kind of place that sweats on every detail - it manages to bring a refined dining experience in a modern yet graceful way - without being over the top or try hard.
There’s a wonderland in Langwarrin (just outside Frankston) that’s larger than life - with over 100 sculptures, 16 hectares of native bushland and landscaped gardens, art gallery and licensed café and to top it off… it’s free.
If you’re wondering where we go to enjoy some of the finest food, artistic sculptures and uninterrupted views on the Mornington Peninsula it’s Pt. Leo Estate. With three dining choices including Laura (a more refined dining experience offering a set menu that tells a local seasonal harvest story), Pt. Leo Restaurant (a modern restaurant with a large wood fired oven that is the heart of its food offering) and the Wine Terrace (the simple things like a glass of wine and charcuterie plate is all that matters).
Mr Morce is one of those restaurants where you chat with your mates until the first plate hits the table then silence and anticipation prevail – one thing is for sure, however far you travel it’s going to be worth it. All the ingredients are top notch, and it seems like chefs Ryan James and Ed Day - the people behind the scenes - care are about how things taste, not just how they look.
