         A delicate chocolate cloud with a subtle flavour of cocoa and cream is exactly what a person who has tasted a truffle feels. This exquisite dessert has been capturing the hearts of sweet-toothed people for centuries, and its popularity is only growing. So much so that a holiday was founded in its honour. The 2nd of May is Truffle Day, a great occasion to learn its history and enjoy this magnificent dessert.


Dive into the history of the desert: the French roots of the chocolate truffle.

        The chocolate truffle first appeared in France in the 19th century. Its creator is believed to be Auguste Escoffier, the famous chef. The story goes that the chef accidentally poured hot cream into a vase of chocolates, and the result was a delicious dessert. A slightly different version of the story claims that it was his assistant who made the mistake, not the chef himself. Since then, truffle sweets have become a symbol of luxury and sophistication. Different times and countries have had their own legends about who invented this dessert and how. Some speak of an accidental discovery, others of a careful creative process.


        A mixture of cream and chocolate turned into what we now know as ganache. It was shaped into balls and sprinkled with cocoa powder. The result was remarkably similar to a truffle mushroom with cocoa powder as a primer that sticks to the mushrooms during assembly. Thus the name "chocolate truffle" was born.

        Today, there are many types of truffle sweets. Classic French truffles are made of chocolate and cream, sprinkled with cocoa powder. Of course, French truffles are considered the most traditional. Belgian truffles often have a more liquid filling and can be filled with ganache or nut paste. American and Canadian truffles may vary in shape and filling, but they are also a delicious addition to the party.


        French, Belgian, Swiss, American and Canadian truffles are the most common types, but many handmade chocolatiers prefer to use their own unique recipes and fillings. Some less common chocolate truffle fillings include liqueur, champagne, herbs, spices and even chilli peppers! The chocolate truffle in its endless variations is a truly delightful dessert.
