Black Tie and Gumboot Truffle Hunt and Dinner with Guest Chef, Giovanni Pilu
June 26 @ 3:30 pm - 10:30 pm$320
Dust off the ball gowns, spruce up the top hats, add some sparkle to the gumboots – it’s Borrodell’s Black Tie and Gumboot Truffle Hunt and Dinner. It’s time to dress up to the nines, go hunting for Borrodell’s Black Perigord truffles, then retire to a private underground cellar where Borrodell’s resident chef Charles Woodward (Cottage Point Inn, The Lake House, Pilu) and two-hat guest chef Giovanni Pilu (Pilu at Freshwater) create a five-course decadent degustation truffle feast. This is an iconic Orange event and is even listed by media personality, Lyndey Milan OAM, as one of her top 3 Australia-wide food destinations.
Borrodell has the oldest truffle oak trees on mainland Australia and – as with all quality produce – freshness is key to unlocking all the nuances of a truffle’s flavour profile. The Black Tie and Gumboot Truffle Hunt and Dinner is a Winter Wonderland treat where diners not only glam-up, but rug up! Guests roam the vines and orchard of Borrodell to search for truffles with the truffle dogs, then retire to the warmth and candle-light of the wine cellar for a fine dinner prepared by some of the finest chefs in the country.
Every year, the Black Tie and Gumboot Truffle Hunt and Dinner hosts a charity auction and this year we are proudly supporting Koala rescue organisations. Guests can bid on artworks as well as the prized truffles found during the hunt. Guests are not only encouraged to dress like they’re attending the Oscars – but there are also prizes for the best gumboot! So get out the hot glue and paste those diamontes to your favourite pair to be in the running for a prize!
Each year, guests travel from near and far to be a part of this spectacular and memorable evening (please contact us if you need to use the Borrodell helipad). For those that love some fun, great wine, and of course a decadent meal of fresh farm truffles, book your tickets today.
