This time of year we often find ourselves in an Italian frame of mind. Years ago, before we were married and had kids, we spent an amazing week together in Tuscany, having long leisurly meals in small out of the way restaurants, walking cobblestone streets, getting more olive oil from the 50 gallon terra cotta basin in the basement.
With fond memories in mind then, we've put together two truffles loosley based on Italian flavors for this, the most romantic of holidays. Our Lavender Limoncello piece starts with a lavender flower scented marshmallow over a dark chocolate ganache spiked with limoncello liquor. Next to this is piece inspired by the classic Affogato, espresso coffee poured over vanilla ice cream. We've interpreted this by mixing fresh Madagascar vanilla into a creme fraiche ganace, over a dark chocolate espresso ganache spiked with a hint of rye whiskey.
Available online, at our Five Points location, and at holiday pop up markets while supplies last.
