Yay for great food – and if Tsogo Sun Chefs Gareth and Matthew are on the beat, then you know that you are in for great
In a collaborative creation by two Tsogo Sun executive chefs – Matthew Foxon of 54 on Bath’s Level Four and Gareth Jordaan of The Palazzo Montecasino’s Medeo – along with The Palazzo’s Pastry Chef Marco Gaspar, the exquisite and earthy flavours of truffles will be paired with the perfect wines at two delightful truffle and wine pairing dinners.
The two six-course dinners are on Thursday 25 July at Level Four, 54 on Bath, featuring wines from Morgenster Estate, and on Monday 5 August at the exquisite Rosa venue at The Palazzo Montecasino. The cost of both dinners is R650 per person.

They’re coveted for their rarity and have been described as “sublime and mysterious: with a unique taste, reminiscent of earthy mushrooms and with more depth and complexity.
