July 4, 2019 Dining No Comments Email Email

Discover and indulge in winter’s culinary gem, the exquisite truffle, as The Star Entertainment Group celebrates Truffle Month across its multi award-winning signature dining destinations.

The enticing aromas and stunning flavours of the truffle are set to engulf The Star Sydney, The Star Gold Coast and Treasury Brisbane from July 1 – August 31 with meticulously crafted truffle-infused menus.

The highly-anticipated Australian winter truffle harvest continues to gain momentum each year as the delicacy remains among the most expensive natural foods in the world.

Unable to be farmed, raised in a greenhouse, or made in a laboratory, the deeply pungent wild fungus is a pure product of Mother Nature’s magic and has an undisputed hold over chefs worldwide.

Executive Chef of The Star Sydney’s Sokyo and The Star Gold Coast’s Kiyomi, Chase Kojima said the allure of the truffle is very real in the culinary world, and often touted as the ‘black diamonds of the earth’.

“Our highly skilled and acclaimed team of Executive Chefs at The Star have honoured this intensely fragrant and delicious ingredient by crafting divine dishes, from entrees through to desserts, to feature across our signature dining venues.

“We have sourced the finest product from Australian truffle forests famed for producing some of the most revered black truffles, including Manjimup, Western Australia and Braidwood and Harold’s Cross in New South Wales.”
