IS this Australia’s most decadent toastie?
The Truffle & Wine Co and Livingstone’s Urban Jungle have teamed up to create the ‘Lord Byron’ – comprised of 100 per cent WA-sourced produce.
The toastie features Chardonnay-macerated Stracchino cheese along with shaved Black Truffles from Manjimup, and promises to be an extravagant flavour sensation.
“One of our main focuses this year is accessibility,” The Truffle & Wine Co Head of Sales Alex Wilson said.
“We want to spread the word about how amazing truffles are and prove that they don’t have to be this serious, overly expensive item exclusively for the top end of town, so I feel that teaming up with the guys at Livingstone’s to offer the CBD crowd a luxurious truffle toastie is the perfect way to achieve this.”
Livingstone’s co-owner Justin Blackford can’t wait to start making the toastie.
“Of course I’m most excited about getting to use some amazing Black Truffles from Manjimup,” Mr Blackford said.
“But this year I wanted our truffle toastie to be a showcase of the phenomenal produce available in WA.
“Working with the Wild Bakery to produce some unique truffle-infused sourdough bread, sourcing the sustainably produced mushrooms from Life Cykel and locally made Borello cheese from Little Sister Delicatessen has been an exciting way to take things a step further.”
Forget the linen table cloths and stuffy, formal setting that normally accompanies truffle consumption – Australia’s most decadent toastie will come served takeaway style in a humble cardboard box.
The toastie won’t come cheap, selling for $20, but it promises to be a sensational taste experience.
The Lord Byron will be available from Friday June 16 for a limited time.
Livingstone’s Urban Jungle is located at the Perth Cultural Centre, opposite The Art Gallery of Western Australia.
