Australian and European Truffles
Friend & Burrell provide chefs with the highest quality, professionally graded truffles of culinary merit (Tuber magnatum and Tuber melanosporum). We grade and pack truffles in accordance with chefs’ preferences and deliver and pack to maximise their shelf life.
Rigorous and consistent truffle grading is critical for chefs. The truffles are subjected to close assessment from the time they’re identified by the farmers' dogs, dug and cleaned to the time they reach our grading table, then graded and packed for chefs by us.
We grade objectively to the high standards required by chefs. We discard truffles that are over or under ripe, with poor nose, unacceptably irregular shape, damaged by bug or other animal, with undefined marbling or simply not presenting as melanosporum should. Soft or wet truffles are unacceptable. Our truffles are dense, firm and flavoursome.
