Casual fare from Pier One’s food shack as well as an elegant tasting experience are on offer until the end of truffle season
Harbourside hotel Pier One Sydney Harbour’s one-hatted restaurant The Gantry has curated a line-up of truffle themed events and experiences to showcase our nearest growing truffle regions, Canberra and the Southern Highlands, and celebrate the ‘black gold’ of funghi fare. Available until the end of the truffle season – usually the end of August or early September – Head Chef Thom Gorringe and his team have curated a special menu which is designed to take diners on a six-course culinary journey of the heavenly truffle, presented in partnership with the Truffle Association. The menu is on offer within the restaurant or for group bookings in the Private Dining Room.
Highlight dishes include the sharing style Baked Camembert stuffed with Truffle, the Spanner Crab Chawanmushi with truffle and Jerusalem artichoke and the Milk Chocolate Truffle, a twist on the restaurant’s signature Dulche de Leche dessert.
“We invite food lovers to join us in celebrating the best of winter and the great produce of our closest food regions this truffle season, whether it be enjoying the Ultimate Truffle Toastie from The Kerrigan, an elevated truffle tasting experience at The Gantry or a unique truffle experience within a private waterside Igloo,” said Kim Mahaffy, General Manager of Pier One Sydney Harbour.
The Truffle Tasting Menu is available for $160 per person, with matching wines at $89 per person. Guests can get more truffle treats at The Kerrigan at Pier One – the food shack located on the Pier – where mouth-watering truffle fries, a truffle burger and the “Ultimate Truffle Toastie” with truffle pecorino and served with truffle potatoes is on offer. Guests of the hotel over the winter season will also be treated to a limited-edition truffle takeover for breakfast, with indulgent truffle specials updated daily.
Bookings for The Gantry’s Truffle Tasting must be made at least 48 hours in advance.
