Want to go on the ultimate foodie experience? Kitchen Takeover and Te Puke Truffles are teaming up to offer our foodie tribe a rare and memorable experience that brings together the best of the Bay of Plenty’s produce and people.

Since 2015 Maureen and Colin, owners of Te Puke truffles have been harvesting some of the best quality truffles in New Zealand. Now they want to invite you onto their lifestyle farm to go on a once in a lifetime experience and hunt a truffle. Following six sold out events, we have added two new dates, Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th July.

You will get to go on a search with their truffle hunting dog Jed as he helps you sniff out a black Perigord truffle at the height of the truffle season which only lasts from June-July. Once you have found your edible treasure, you will have the opportunity to taste the truffles in a host of different ways.

And if that isn’t enough, we’ve challenged our head chef Rob Forsman to create a delectable goodie bag for you to take home hero-ing the delicious truffle from the farm.
