Here’s one part of Chef Mavro’s letter announcing the arrival of Aussie Perigord truffles. Thanks to the reversed seasons in Australia, we are able to offer “winter” Perigord truffles in the summer!

“Our Summer in Provence menu now features Aussie Perigord truffles!
As I mentioned in my previous newsletter we are featuring a Summer in Provence Menu that includes: Scallop Grenobloise – Peterson’s egg – Bourride – Coq au vin – Strawberry mille feuille. Thanks to all who have already given it very positive reviews!
