Matteo’s menu is set to explore the ‘Soils of the Earth’, taking you on a 5-course culinary adventure showcasing a wonderfully diverse range of Victorian produce. Through these dishes, meticulously curated and created by Matteo, you will explore how a healthy environment is the key to extracting the highest quality flavour from your ingredients.

The Night’s feature ingredient will be the local Black Perigord Truffle supplied by NangiyalaTruffiere. Special Guest David McConnell from Nangiyala Truffiere will be there to share any inside knowledge he can about this unique product.

The evening will be held in our Heart of Hall Dining Room, Newport. Here you will not only feast on this delicious dinner and enjoy a complementary drink, but be given the opportunity to watch, learn and interact with Matteo as he weaves his culinary magic just for you. A night to remember, you will go home with all of Matteo’s recipes used throughout the night as well as professional advice on how to recreate the dishes at home.
