Truffle fever has officially hit, with QT Canberra this year showing their support via numerous in-house offerings and a much celebrated truffle package that combines an overnight stay with a hunt for the flavoursome fungi.
Available across three Saturdays this winter, QT Canberra is proud to support the annual Canberra Truffle Festival by offering a bespoke Truffle Negroni – a vivacious concoction consisting of truffle infused Bulldog gin, Carpano Antico Formula, Campari, Orange Twist, Black Truffle Salt, Campari dusted chocolate truffle. This will also be served in all QT Hotels and Resorts, Australia-wide.
Additionally, the hotel will allow travellers and locals keen for a unique outdoor experience to combine luxurious accommodation in a designer QT room followed by a truffle hunt the next day.
The Truffle Farm is the only of its kind in a capital city in the world, offering guests the chance to hunt for the rare and delicious black bounty throughout a picturesque trufferie that is set over 10 hectares. The location is part of the attraction, boasting views of the vines of Mt Majura winery and surrounded by an oak tree forest.
Post-hunt, visitors will enjoy an intimate truffle tasting at the farm, before a return transfer to QT Canberra, where they can indulge in a feast of the senses at Capitol Bar & Grill. Here they may choose to continue the theme, sampling one of the restaurant’s hearty winter specials such as parmesan and lemon crusted milk fed veal loin, topped with wild mushrooms, lemon thyme and melted black truffle pecorino.
This decadent package is available on June 24, July 2 and August 5 and also includes breakfast for two in Capitol Bar & Grill, late checkout of 1pm and complimentary car parking.
