Dinner at Kitchen by Mike in Sydney’s CBD embraces truffle season from 21 June – 17 August, with a luxurious vegetarian truffle menu. The 5-course menu heroes the truffles in a celebration of the winter season. The vegetarian truffle menu is priced at $90pp with an optional wine match. The full Kitchen by Mike dinner menu remains available throughout both months.

In contrast to the bustling daytime canteen vibe, Kitchen by Mike at night slows down, transforming into an inviting restaurant offering table and wine service in a warm atmosphere. All aspects of the dinner menu are designed to nourish and celebrate the season.

As Creative Director of Carriageworks’ Farmers Market, Mike has a personal relationship with every single producer of the ingredients he uses at his restaurants. After a visit to Jayson Mesman’s The Truffle Farmin Canberra, Mike was inspired to celebrate this aromatic and earthy delicacy with an entire menu of its own.  Jayson produces incredible truffles and is also famous for his highly trained Truffle Dogs, many of whom are rescues.  

In an unusual move, Mike McEnearney wanted to step away from the traditional truffle dishes and hero the rich flavour and aroma of Jayson’s truffles in a lighter and more seasonal connected way.

 Mike explains, “I just love working with Jayson Mesman’s The Truffle Farm in Canberra where he grows his incredible truffles under hazelnut and oak trees. We wanted to give the meat a break and champion some winter vegetables such as celeriac and mushrooms and create a winter warming truffle menu for your hearts & bellies, the idea just made sense.”

The menu will include dishes such as salt-baked celeriac with mushrooms and truffle; twice baked goat’s cheese soufflé with truffle & rosemary and truffled crème brûlée.

Bookings for Kitchen by Mike’s vegetarian truffle month menu are on sale via kitchenbymike.com.au. The menu is available from 5.30pm between 21st June – 17th August, dates inclusive.
