MEET Our Team

Diane Roederer

CEO & Owner

In 2013, Diane hunted for truffles on an expedition in Spain. That was when she decided, officially, that this would be her next venture. Returning to Texas, she greeted several chefs by asking them to open a sizable box filled with truffles. As the smell of glorious truffles entered their senses, strong culinary bonds were forged and Diane was coined 'The Truffle Lady.'
Today, Diane is well on her way to creating an empire of delicacies. She enjoys seeking out the best of the best and providing top shelf ingredients to chefs in the process.
