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.
