“Being from the north of Italy quality truffles were something that I missed when I came to Australia. Duncan’s truffles, in my opinion, are comparable, if not better than, most European truffles and I cannot wait for each season to start to be able to create dishes around this amazing product."

I never forget the first time I used one of Duncan’s truffles, I said

now that’s what a truffle smells like", I hadn't thought this since I had left Europe several years before. Duncan’s eye for detail in assessing aroma, quality and flavour are amazing, for many years I have been using Perigord truffles of Tasmania and will continue to do so.

“It is wonderful from a chefs view to have access to such wonderful fresh Australian truffles, Duncan's truffles in my opinion have the most intense aroma and true depth of flavour than any other I have experienced locally.”

When it comes to truffles, freshness is everything. That's why I prefer those grown closest to our two restaurants Manfredi at Bells and Balla. These black winter truffles come from farms in the Southern Highlands around 90 minutes from Sydney. Their provenance, quality and freshness is exactly what I look for in our primary ingredients.

Duncan Garvey’s truffles are consistently some of the finest i have tried, either here or in Europe! Size, aroma, texture are always spot on and any spec we ask, Duncan makes it happen. The fact you can hop online and have the freshest and most aromatic truffles on your doorstep in 24 hours is amazingly convenient too.

When I buy truffles from Duncan they get delivered the following day after I order them. I get shivers in my back and my mouth starts watering as soon as I hold the container in my hand can't wait to open it and smell them. The perfume is exhilarating and soon is all over me. It's hard to explain such a perfume it almost moves throughout my kitchen. I just love them. The best truffles in the Southern Hemisphere.

“Thank you for a very well packaged and speedily delivered truffle. The quality of the truffle is exceptional; as good as I have had in France I would say. I sautéed scallops, salt, in light olive oil, deglazed with some sherry. Finely diced truffle was soaked in cream, to infuse flavour. The cream sauce was spooned onto a plate, sautéed scallops on top.”

Adam, Perth

This truffle butter Duncan makes in collaboration with Pepe Saya is outrageously good when I melt it over a steak and it is to die for.

Patricia, Melbourne

A little while back now I had a call from my mate Duncan Garvey. He'd been up to see Pepe Saya in Sydney, and was working with him on an exciting new product – a truffle butter, using fresh black Perigord truffles. Imagine my delight when I was offered to taste the first samples. My response when I was asked what I thought: "It was amazing. I even licked the wrapper." Pepe Saya truffle butter is the sexiest aphrodisiac – I promise you. It is food for the Gods.

Just in case there are any doubters out there it is DELICIOUS. Although the suggestion was to let it melt slowly onto steak, I had mine spread onto sourdough toast, and it was one of the most satisfying lunches I have ever had. Light and luxurious at the same time, I just kept breathing in the intoxicating scent of the truffles mingling seductively with the cultured butter.
