Where do you get the best Chocolate Truffles in Montreal? I did a search and nothing came up under the subject. Sooooo, I'm asking.
Try your own kitchen! Nothing is easier to make than truffles. It starts with ganache. This is simply pure organic whole cream heated to just before boiling point and poured over finely chopped organic premium chocolate of the finest variety. The proportions for truffles are generally 2 parts chocolate to 1 part cream. You can experiment and add liquor, herbs, spices, etc to your cream to infuse it with flavor. Strain the cream into the chopped chocolate and stir gently to evenly incorporate it into the chocolate. The mixture will solidify at room temperature. At that point, you can form the ganache into balls and dust them in premium organic cocoa or dip them in melted chocolate. Once they are dipped you can roll them in nuts or coconut--or give them a gently sprinkling of fleur du sel (sea salt). If you want them for Valentine's Day I can tell you NOTHING will make your honey happier than truffles hand-made by her love. Get creative how you serve them!
i have tried and enjoyed the truffles at Chocobel, übersmall shop located corner Drolet and Castelneau (one street above Jean Talon). well worth the detour when going to the market.
You can certainly use my kitchen at home if you want- for an hour or two on Friday.
