OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The last Friday of September was my housemate’s birthday, in order to celebrate we had a relaxing dinner in, just the three of us. We headed round to Waitrose to pick up a “Dine in for 2 for £10”, we selected a cheese board, chicken and tarragon pie, with a side of vegetables and white wine. In order to make the meal stretch to three we bought a bag of potatoes and whipped up a tray of Dauphinoise potatoes. We ate and drank wine and watched E open her presents; a Coco Chanel lipstick, Green & Black’s chocolate and mini Prosecco. Before settling down to watch a film and nibble on chocolate truffles, whipped up with our own fair hands.

We made the truffles following the Londoner’s recipe, although we stopped after rolling the truffles as we forgot to buy additional chocolate to cover them in! A bit of a foolish error but at least it gives me an excuse to make them again. I am looking forward to try out different flavours such as; the Londoner’s salt addition, chilli, orange and many other options. Hopefully I will try them out again soon and get some better photos to share, these ones are a little shadowy as we decided to make the truffles at about 10 o’clock at night so sadly the lighting wasn’t excellent in our little kitchen.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAlso a quick question, we had a lot of trouble when rolling the truffles. We tried tea spoons, rolling in cocoa and measuring spoons, which proved the best method, but still not great. Is there an easier way to roll the truffles? Some one I’ve spoken to since suggested keeping your hands cold, does this method work?
