Ice wine and truffles

In a few minutes the neighbours will be here, and we will enjoy some Nova Scotian ice wine and some French chocolate truffles I made from scratch today.

The ones on the left were my first batch, but I melted the chocolate too quickly, with too much heat. They’re therefore a bit grainy. I was more careful with the bain marie for the batch on the right, though, and they’re silky smooth.

    Your talents never fail to amaze and impress me.
    Now I will be expecting a taste test in person!

    I’m a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, shrouded in a haze from the fog machines of whatever band I happen to be seeing that night.
