Black truffles

Black truffles

The anticipation that accompanies truffle season is almost over, with No. 1 Bent Street celebrating the start of this year's harvest with a Truffle Dinner on 15 June, featuring five courses with matched wines.

One of the first truffle events of the season, the dinner sees owner and executive chef Mike McEnearney and head chef Jeffrey De Rome using the revered fungi in dishes such as cobia sashimi with braised truffled mushroom and radish, a goat's cheese soufflé with rosemary and truffle and a chicken demi-deuil cooked on the spit.

Try our favourite truffle recipes

Each course will be paired with Ravensworth wines selected by winemaker Bryan Martin, including a seven-month skin-contact pinot gris blend and a preview of their 2017 gamay noir.

Truffle farmer Jayson Mesman will be supplying the truffles from the first hunt of the season on his property in Mount Majura, near Canberra.

For those who are curious about the origins of the highly-prized ingredient, you can watch Mesman and his dogs in action thanks to a video of their truffle hunt, made by Sydney Direct Fresh Produce.

And if you've got a taste for the black gold, make the most of the fleeting season with one of the many festivals happening around the country.
