Truffles & Cheese at Red Hill Truffles

0410 596 637

8 Jul 2017

Jenny McAuley and her super sniffer truffle dog Thomas will lead you through the oak and hazelnut trees of this private Red Hill Truffiere. You will have the opportunity to taste, smell, handle, photograph and even purchase freshly harvested truffle. Jenny will discuss growing, harvesting and cooking with truffle before you enjoy a tasting of truffle produce and dishes with a glass of wine.

Then meet Tamara Newing from BoatShed Cheese, an award-winning artisan producer on the Mornington Peninsula, specialising in French style handmade cheeses. Tamara uses Victorian goat, cow, buffalo and sheep milk to create her preservative free cheese using age-old French techniques.

In this class, she will introduce you to several styles of cheese and how they are made and then demonstrate how easy it is to infuse the fabulous winter flavour of truffles into a handmade ricotta.

Finally, enjoy a tasting of Truffled Brie and Truffle Tomme before leaving with your own truffled ricotta to take home.
