Lavish winter truffle dinners by Rockpool Dining Group

July 10, 2017 Dining No Comments Email Email

Rockpool Dining Group celebrates the arrival of Australia’s luxurious winter truffles with exclusive dinners in Melbourne and Sydney.

Alfred Place by Rockpool Events in Melbourne will showcase these ‘diamonds of gastronomy’ at an extravagant seven-course dinner designed by Rockpool Bar & Grill Head Chef Zac Nicholson.

Accompanying the menu are a list of some of the world’s great wine styles, selected by Rockpool Dining Group Master Sommelier Sebastian Crowther.

Alfred Place by Rockpool Events is elegant example of art deco decadence. With its grand staircase, soaring ceilings and opulent touches of marble and rich emerald, Alfred Place is as much a dedicated events space as it is a bespoke extension of the Rockpool Dining Group’s restaurants. It is the perfect setting for this stunning menu:
