Sadly truffle season is almost over. So, we’re going to use these last of the season to get a hold of as much of the delicious morsel we can. The great people at Mode Kitchen and Bar are here to help us on our quest for truffles. They have created two truffle menus and a range of truffle infused cocktails. Choose between the Truffle Tasting menu (a three-course affair) and the Truffle Table (a four-course menu and private talk from head chef Francesco Mannelli). Both degustations highlight the unmistakable flavours of fresh Aussie truffle. Dare to be brave and try the Truffle Espresso Martini or Black & White Negroni. Head here to book.

When: Tuesday 14 August to Wednesday 15 August, 12-10pm
Where: Mode Kitchen and Bar

Wednesday 15 August


Grab your date, or your work wife and head to Juanita’s for Cheese, Whisky and Wine. We know, it’s a solid foodie trifecta that we’ll never get sick of. What else do you need to get through the mid-week blues. Nibble on tasty morsels from the tasting board while you cosy up in front of the fireplace. Pair the nibbles with your choice of whiskey or red. Head here to book.
