Winter Black Truffle Dinner 27 July 2023

Together with Montrachet chef Shannon Kellam it’s my great pleasure to invite you to our inaugural Winter Black Truffle Dinner on Thursday 27 July, to celebrate Shannon’s official role of ambassador for Truffle Hill Manjimup!

Shannon has presented truffles throughout France, Norway, Singapore and China, and has admired and championed Truffle Hill since before taking over Montrachet in 2015.

Shannon is travelling to Manjimup this month to visit Truffle Hill to sniff out the best truffles and formalise his new role in preparation for our dinner.

He has pulled out all stops to create an incredible menu showcasing these new season winter truffles in seven dishes across five courses, featuring Sturgeon caviar, lobster, Pemberton marron, Brisbane Valley quail, Stockyard beef and more!

I’ve plundered my cellar to assemble a list of seven of my favourite wines worthy of such a menu, featuring Champagne, Burgundy, Australia, New Zealand and Portugal; not least Bollinger, Charles Heidsieck, Felton Road and Henschke!

Shannon and I very much look forward to sharing this special celebration of winter truffles with you!
