Known as the ‘diamond of the kitchen’, truffles are easy to find when you have highly trained truffle-hunting dogs on your side.
A rarity and earthy delicacy widely popular in Italian, French, and other haute cuisines, truffles are prized as a luxury ingredient only harvested in small quantities. They can take up to a decade to develop deep underground and only sniffed out by specially trained animals, making them a prized food item that is both exciting to find and delicious to eat.
Truffling is a burgeoning industry that’s only taken root in Australia over the past twenty years. Now, South Australia’s humble truffle industry is beginning to flourish—and there is now the opportunity to discover the hunt and taste of this gourmet delicacy first-hand.
Exclusive to The Tailor Touring Co., join the hunt for the truffle on an exclusive luxury journey. Travelling in VIP style, meet the owners of one of South Australia’s successful truffle farms and accompany truffle dog trainers and their very clever companions specially trained to sniff out these delicacies on their quest. After the hunt, your taste buds will confirm why these earthy morsels are so prized with a truffle-infused lunch with paired wines at award-winning restaurant The Currant Shed, followed by a personalised wine tasting at family-run Geddes Wines to round off this deliciously gourmet day.
With only two set dates for this season and spaces limited to just twelve intrepid gourmands, this experience is an epicurean adventure to remember.
