There's nothing I love making more than chocolate during the Winter, and a dark chocolate truffle is a great starting assignment for beginner chocolatiers. Making bonbons and truffles is always a time-consuming, ambitious project that takes the better part of the day, but when it's cold outside, there's nothing I'd rather be doing than hovering over a bowl of melted couverture chocolate to watch its every move and monitor its temperature like an overprotective mother.

Yesterday Party gushed about the flavor of truffles on items such as fries, salad dressings, and pizzas.

Last week I dined with a girlfriend at a neighborhood restaurant called Local.

It may not be my most preferred flavor, but I, too, enjoy the taste of truffles on fries, in salad dressings, or drizzled on pizzas. How about you?

While on the first date with the love of her life, Édith Piaf — one of France's most beloved popstars — demands that her date, Marcel Cerdan, take her to a fancy restaurant.
