Locally grown truffles feature in every single course at this long and leisurely ‘Truffled Lunch’ – plus a stellar selection of local wines.
Where: Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula
Italy might have the lion’s share of the world’s truffle market, but Australia is making inroads into growing this fantastic fungus, which puts it right in the 100 Mile Foodie’s sights as a locally grown ingredient with miraculous, meal-transforming properties!
Set in the stunning location of the Old Church, the Truffled Lunch celebrates truffle season by showcasing local Red Hill truffles, truffle oil, and white and black truffle salt in every course. That’s including the dessert: even the ice cream will have truffle in it! Each course is paired with beautiful local wines.

She and her team offer catering, special events, cooking workshops and private dinners out of two locations, South Gippsland and the Mornington Peninsula.
