Fun with Fungi

Teaming up three of their enduring passions: truffles, culinary travel and Tasmania, truffle grower and director of Melbourne's truffle festival, Truffle Melbourne, Nigel Wood and epicurean and former Vue de Monde events coordinator Leisa Latham will host a behind the scenes private aircraft weekend visit to the Tamar Valley and Flinders Island in August, focusing on innovative artisan producers.


This exclusive trip includes chauffeured transport to Essendon jet base, a check-in at a distillery while the butlers transfer guests' baggage to the terminal, return private air travel to Tasmania and Flinders Island, luxurious bespoke accommodation at Red Feather Inn, a private truffle hunt, and a lunch with selected Tasmanian artisanal producers. There is also time for a truffle cooking class, a degustation dinner at Tasmania's best truffle restaurant, Stillwater, and a whole day on remote Flinders Island, with quirky island producers sharing their stories.


Limited to ten adventurous travellers, this weekend is one of Australia's most unusual and outstanding culinary adventures. Fine Tasmanian truffles will feature in every meal from truffled canapés on arrival, and delicious truffle breakfasts, to the most stunning degustation dinner, culminating in day-long feasting on Flinders Island's best produce, teamed with truffle.
