A WORD FROM DIANE ROEDERER
The excitement of my work is the constant global hunt for the best sources of unique and spectacular food items. I work directly with growers and purveyors in several continents to acquire exquisite truffle selections. A special sense of pride comes from delivering perfect truffles to chefs' kitchens that were in the ground halfway across the world only a few days earlier.
Every item we provide is a delicacy, they represents not only the culmination of my hunt for the best possible resources but an important ongoing relationship with a supplier who knows their product intimately. These individuals share my commitment to providing only the best. I hunt the best!
A Growing Legacy
With Houston’s upscale food industry exploding, Diane could not have picked a better time to launch drdelicacy.com, a specialty food importer of black and white truffles from around the world. Within a year of opening, she expanded the ingredients she offers to both chefs and specialty food customers.
More than Just a Logo
The logo of DR Delicacy is Diane's family crest in honor of the spirit of adventure and excellence instilled by her family in so many wonderful ways. She added “Delicacy “ to her initials (D.R.) to represent the variety of specialty items she offers and continues to seek. Today the company ventures beyond the glorious black truffles and white truffles that originally built DR Delicacy.
