It's a strange coincidence that many precious commodities that have flourished and been consumed over civilisations are black in color. Think petroleum, coffee, most minerals and not forgetting the seemingly scarce truffles. Here's another 'black gold', according to us anyways : )
We made these robust and rustic dark chocolate truffles the size of walnuts. They had creamy ganache center of imported chocolate with morsels of prune, apricot, strawberry or date in its epicenter. These were served along with mini cheesecakes and profiteroles for a dinner party at Kristian's last week. Guests relished them one after another with glasses of late harvest Riesling (an excellent accompaniment) and cups of coffee.
