Live Truffle Blogging: Raspberry

There really aren't many combinations more perfect than the marriage of raspberries and dark chocolate. I haven't had a sip of alcohol in fifteen years, but I can still taste the exquisite combination of a raspberry truffle and some dry champagne.

It's a combination not to be missed. Again, I had to improvise on the decoration today. The normal way I do these is to sprinkle with some bright red sugar crystals and then stripe with white. Since I couldn't find my sugars I just striped with red and white.

I think it came out OK.

This concludes the live truffle blogging portion of the show. I figured nobody much would be interested in the live cleaning up the bloody kitchen part. The machine needs to be broken down and thoroughly cleaned, then the counters, then the floors.

But Look!

I think it was worth the effort made and the effort to come. I'll be packing up tomorrow morning and shipping. I'm excited. How about you?

Dude, you're fucking obsessed with truffles. Really.

Moreso than my wife.

And that's saying a mouthful.

No pun intended...

Gorgeous. I hear W.C. Fields in the background, carefully enunciating, "razz-berries."

I am also a chocolate purist, but this combination is a joy.

I'll say more as soon as I stop drooling. Oh but the mess was worth it.

This is such an awful day for me and I could use something sweet in the worst way.

More than my mouth is watering. As Jerry Blank once said, "I'm as moist as a sponge cake down there."

I think I'm going to steal these pics and save them to my desktop so I can put them on slideshow mode.

Food porn: a higher level.

Oh my God, I want to climb into my laptop and taste these right now.

Especially the ginger. But all of them...

And so, so pretty. Since no Champagne for you, sir, how about a pot of PG Tips, brewed extra-strong, with some warm milk and raw sugar on the side? I love to have tea with my chocolate. But then, I love just about everything with chocolate.

In fact, I recently discovered, via the magic of a Neiman's gift card, this wonderful line of sweets-scented scented bath stuff by Laura Mercier. She does chocolate truffle scrubs, créme brulee body creams, all sorts of goodies that make you want to take a bite out of your own arm the minute you step out of the shower.

Dear MB,

It is not possible to get through this day without requesting the pricing for the smaller shipments of truffles, please. I'm afraid I didn't make note of these when you posted them previously. Thanks.

I really do want to see live cleaning up the kitchen blogging. Rally I do.
