RED HILL TRUFFLES
Farmgate sales of fresh local produce are a treat at any time of the year, but it is hard to resist produce that can turn your kitchen into a welcoming, winter wonderland. A cold day stoked with the aroma of baked meals and hearty soups brimming with farm-grown root vegetables and fragrant herbs is unbeatable.
This winter, Red Hill Truffles is hosting farmgate sales of its rare tubers to entice you to keep the home fires burning and transform your favourite dishes. As part of the Morning Peninsula Shire’s support for agricultural businesses during COVID-19, Red Hill Truffles has special approval to trade as a farmgate for 2020.
Truffle farmer Jenny McAuley said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer our coveted black truffles for sale along with other products, including truffle and mushroom paste, truffle butter, truffle salt, truffle honey, and truffle eggs.
“Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we will be conducting small truffle hunts and tastings for up to 10 people on weekends only, during June and July.
“The farmgate at 235 Arthurs Seat Rd, Red Hill, will operate from our pavilion on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am until 4pm, starting from June 3 to August 9. We will be able to answer questions and provide tips on the simplest ways to add a dash of luxury to your meals.
“If you have never experienced the rich, unforgettable flavour and intoxicating scent of a truffle, add them to your shopping list for June and start your own winter tradition. You only need a small amount to tantalise your tastebuds.
“If you are already a truffle convert, start planning your menus – scrambled eggs, pasta with truffle and mushroom paste, some toast in bed dripping with truffled honey or your own culinary masterpiece.”
