A week of truffle events and experiences at Mister Bianco restaurant.
Mark your diaries as you will not want to miss this… From Monday 5th to Sunday 11th August, Mister Bianco restaurant in Kew will be celebrating the end of truffle season by giving diners the opportunity to experience a truffle farm – in the restaurant!
Owner Joseph Vargetto has partnered with The Truffle Queen, Rachel Truscott, to bring the country to metro Melbourne and with it the very best truffles. The 'Green House' dining room will be transformed to a truffle farm with soil, trees and a truffle hunt. Guests will be able to meet a truffle farmer and their dog to learn about the growing and hunting process before they watch the truffle dog find a truffle. All in the comfort of the restaurant. Guests will be able to take part in this experience between 7-9pm each day. They will also have the opportunity to buy the truffle the dog finds for them if they desire.
The Monday and Wednesday to Saturday evenings will offer a delectable Mister Bianco a la carte menu, but with a truffle focus, using the very best local Victoria and Western Australian truffles. Sharing menus will also be available.
Tuesday 6th August will see a special event – the Il Finale Truffle Dinner. Guests can experience the truffle farm, along with a five-course truffle oriented degustation menu with matching wines, while being serenaded by an opera singer. Doors will open at 6.30pm and tickets are priced $155 per person.
Thursday 8th August sees the Truffle World Cup Lunch – France vs Italy. Owner/chef Joseph Vargetto will challenge his ex-mentor, esteemed chef Philippe Mouchel to a cook-off. Diners will enjoy 3 delicious courses of truffle based tastes from both France and Italy each paired with matched French and Italian wine. The lunch kicks off at 12.15pm and is priced $99 per person.
On Sunday 11th August, Mister Bianco will open for a Truffle Sunday Lunch at 12.30pm. Priced $99 per person, the set sharing menu will include antipasti, truffle pasta and risotto, delicious Porchetta and cannoli to finish - accompanied by wine and coffee.
