Brand Tasmania (http://www.brandtasmania.com) recently posted a video on Youtube about the truffle season opening in the Tamar Valley!
Tamar Valley Truffles invited Katsunobu Kitaoka, one of Japan’s most respected and influential chefs, to run a master class of truffle cuisine timed to launch Tasmania’s 2015 black truffle season.
In this video Kitaoka-san shows how to make good use of a range of the TVT products.
Here’s a great video of our Farm Manager, Marcus Jessup, giving Dirk Kraus (Head Chef of Michelin star restaurant at Columbi Hotel, Frieberg Germany) a personal tour of inspection highlighting the first of the movements of our new season truffles, in the first week of May 2015.
Dirk was on holidays in Tasmania, and visited to inspect the quality of our Tamar Valley Truffles, prior to harvest.
Even after the dogs have initially marked the truffle, it still has to be smelt by use to make absolutely sure the aroma is at its peak.
Our truffles aren’t quite ready for harvest yet – we’re just waiting for that fabulous ‘aroma’ to develop!
The team over at the Spirit of Tasmania have put together a Top Ten Flavours of Tassie list – and guess what? Tamar Valley Truffles makes the list! (more…)
We love it when people over the world get to enjoy our harvest. Diners at Restaurant Picco in Larkspur CA, just north of San Francisco, were treated to Tamar Valley Truffles over the weekend.
The Chef shaved truffles for the customers at the table. (more…)
