Truffles Everywhere!

You guys.

Chocolate might be my favourite ingredient. Ever.

I’m seriously having so much fun in my chocolates class this quarter. It makes getting up at 5am totally worth it.

This probably sounds weird, but I’m not a huge chocolate girl. Don’t get me wrong, chocolate is delicious but I’ve been known to keep chocolate, uneaten, for a long, long time. My best friend is a certified chocaholic and she thinks I’m crazy. Which may or may not be true, but that’s not the point. Basically, chocolate bars sit unopened until she comes around.

Our friendship is beautiful.

Back to this chocolates class though. We literally play with chocolate for 5 hours a day, two times a week. It’s a wonderful, wonderful thing. We’ve spent the last two weeks making truffles and it’s been so great! Hand-dipped truffles, molded truffles, truffles filled with every kind of ganache you can think of. I’ve been in truffle heaven for the last two weeks and I don’t want to leave.

I’ve also been taking a World Cuisine class. It’s fun, but definitely not as fun as playing with chocolate. There are only 5 people in this class, compared to the 14 people in my chocolates class. The first week we focused on Greek food and last week we did some Middle Eastern food. It’s been fun learning about the different foods in various cuisines and how some of the foods are grown/where they come from.

I’m pretty sure this is going to be an awesome quarter and I’m so excited to learn all I can over the next 8 weeks!
