Who doesn’t love truffle, one of the most luxurious ingredients in the world. Start the day with a sniff and scratch at Sacre Monte Truffles, based right here in Hawke’s Bay. You’ll get in behind their clever truffle hunting dog Bear to forage for your bounty before heading to luxury boutique lodge The Manse where you will languish for the afternoon. Owner and Chef Gary Grootelaar is a whizz in the kitchen and will prepare you a four course lunch served with truffle (of course!) right before your very eyes sharing a trick or two as he cooks. Lunch will be matched to Hawke’s Bay wine and will be served in the cosy kitchen of The Manse, with spectacular views looking out to Maraekakaho valley.
Ticket price includes – Truffle hunting with Sacre Monte Truffles and a four course meal at The Manse matched to 2 glasses of wine.
