The earthy aroma of truffles will delight diners in July with five-course Otto truffle degustation set to delight during Good Food Month. Don’t forget that Otto is now in their new home on Brisbane Brisbane River at South Bank.
Otto Chef Will Cowper prefers Manjimup truffles from Western Australia and will be using them for the Otto Truffle Degustation.
Manjimup lies 295 kilometres south of Perth and is the largest producer of Superior Perigord Truffles in the southern hemisphere. The regions rich, fertile soils and cool climate are ideal for growing premium grapes and black truffles. The climate is similar to renowned truffle destinations in France and New Zealand.
OTTO’S TRUFFLE DISHES
The last time I enjoyed truffles at Otto, Will created truffle cornettos, truffle mushroom arancini, and a delicious scallop truffle combination. His house-made fettuccini with slippery jack mushrooms perfectly enhanced with truffles was amazing and the truffle gelato with hazelnut praline and fresh truffle outstanding. The gelato is a beautiful combination of sweet, salty, crunch and ooze. It was my highlight dish for the evening.
“Our smoked ham hock carbonara, mixed wild mushroom risotto and potato gnocchi with parmigiano reggiano are my favourite ways to eat a truffle. None of these dishes over complicates the beauty of the ingredients which allows the truffle to sing. I don’t think you can get anything more delicious” finishes Will.
