They are smelling quite nice says Tim Terry from Tasmanian Truffles Enterprises who is hoping the 2013 harvest to be as prolific as 2012.
Tasmanian Truffles Enterprises is planning to begin the 2013 harvest around mid-June and Glencoe Rural Retreat will follow suit with its Truffles Week-ends.
Glencoe Rural Retreat at Barrington near Sheffield is the best place for a taste of truffle, fresh from the paddock to the plate.
Remi will be cooking traditional French country dishes on Sunday night and will serve them up in Glencoe's intimate dining room.
The cost of a four courses diner is $105 per person (excludes drinks).
Celebrate Christmas at Glencoe in Winter and book a table with friends to enjoy this special delicacy Tasmania has to offer.
If you are interested in the provenance of your truffle Ginette and Remi can also organise a truffles week end, one where Glencoe guests participate in the harvesting of the truffles including watching the dogs sniff out the truffles. The Truffle weekend costs $485 per couple. It includes one night at Glencoe, breakfasts, truffle dinners . Visit to the Tasmanian Trufflerie is $140 per couple to be paid directly to the farm.
The Glencoe dining room holds 2 people and there are just four Provence inspired suites at Glencoe. It wouldn't take much effort for a few friends to book the place out.
OUR TRUFFLES WEEK END STARTS ON 24 JUNE 2013 AND WILL CONTINUE TILL THE END OF THE TRUFFLES SEASON.
