If you have dark chocolate, cream, vanilla and butter in your pantry right now, you’re living well. And, you can make these truffles which, rather dangerously, only require these four simple ingredients.
Midway through the ‘fun times’ of the first trimester (that is, of course, a joke) our dear friends Stephanie and François offered to make us a special dinner as soon as I was back on the right side of food. Just a few nights ago, we did it: pan-seared whiting with vanilla beurre blanc, root vegetable puree and steamed spinach with German cheesecake to seal the deal. Thank goodness for friends that double as amazing cooks.
Given how often they’ve treated us, had us for barbecues, insisted we not bring a thing and generally because we love them, it felt right to take a little token of thanks over this time, just for them. And so came the truffles.
