MORE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Who doesn't love truffles? These uniquely flavorful mushrooms are prized the world over. In Sydney, truffles are used to make some of the most delicious recipes imaginable. But if dining on truffles is rare, finding them is even rarer. That's what makes this truffle hunting day so special.

It all starts bright and early, when you and your group, including the Executive Chef of the InterContinental Sydney and his executive team, leave Sydney at 7am with transport organised for you. Oberon is your destination, where you'll meet with the InterContinental's truffelier. Here you'll learn more about the art of finding truffles with the help of dogs, then set out on a truffle hunt, alongside the experts. It's like a nature walk combined with a hunting experience, as the dogs sniff out fine truffles and you follow along. You'll gather up what you find and then sit down to luxurious three-course lunch with your truffles as the centerpiece. Lunch will be paired with wines as well, so you'll have plenty of chances to toast your tasty discoveries!

BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW

Truffles Delicious, rare, and worth hunting for
You've probably heard of truffles. These famous fungi are highly sought-after in culinary circles, because of their incredibly concentrated flavor. Just a sliver of a truffle can flavor an entire meal. But do you know why they're called truffles?

The origin of the word truffle appears to be the Latin term tuber, meaning "swelling" or "lump", which became tufer- and gave rise to the various European terms: French truffe, Spanish trufa, Danish trøffel, German Trüffel, Swedish tryffel, Dutch truffel, Polish trufel, Serbian тартуф / tartuf and Croatian tartuf.

No matter how you say it, these little mushrooms are delicious. And if you're looking for truffles in Sydney, you've come to the right place!
