PlateUp Ballarat - Ultimate Truffle Toasties - 31st May

Kick off the 2019 winter truffle season with an overload of truffled cheesy luxe. Join us just 10 minutes from the Ballarat CBD with local truffle growers as we hunt the elusive French Perigord black truffle, then we will elevate the humble cheese toastie beyond recognition with the finest Victorian truffle. A selection of 3 different truffled cheese toasties will test your taste buds and will be paired with a glass of wine from local wine makers Mitchell Harris wines at the Black Cat Farm Gate Cafe. A morning (10am) or afternoon (2pm)  session will ensure you don’t miss out.
