Chinese five spice

Chinese five spice is more commonly used as a savoury ingredient, but Peter Fong at Ganache Patisserie puts it in his truffles. It’s a bit surprising, because it looks like a plain old dark chocolate truffle, but then there’s this amazing pepperiness and savouriness that lingers on your tongue.

I just wish that whoever packaged the truffles had paid a little more attention to the task. These dipped truffles were put in the box upside down, which isn’t pretty to look at it. More importantly, it’s disrespectful to the chocolatier’s craft – like hanging a painting upside down.

  1. Looks lovely. Pity the website is poorly programmed. The menu and the image gallery should be merged so that you know what each item looks like. Currently, the image gallery has no captions…and most of the image links don’t actually show a picture.
