History and Trivia
- A chocolate truffle is made of a ganache of chocolate.
- The first truffle appeared in December 1895, in Chambéry, France, when a pâtissier Louis Dufour, while preparing desserts for New Years, suddenly realized he was missing sugared eggs to make chocolate cakes and tarts.
Too proud to ask a colleague for them, he blended cocoa powder with hot cream and vanilla instead.
It is one of the most expensive edible mushrooms in the world.
- First commercially sold in London in 1902, when a relative of Louis Dufour - Antoine Dufour, - opened the Prestat Chocolate Shop in London.
Prestat’s most famous customer is Roald Dahl, author of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory.
Theobroma comes from the Greek and translates as “food of the gods”.
The original Truffel is a ball of ganache enrobed in cocoa powder.
The origin of the word TRUFFLE appears to be the Latin term TUBER, meaning "swelling" or "lump", which became TUFER and gave rise to the various European terms:

French truffe,
Spanish trufa,
Danish trøffel,
German Trüffel,
Swedish tryffel,
Dutch truffel,
Polish trufel,
Serbian tartuf,Б
Italian tartufo.
In Portuguese, it is both trufa and túbera.
ИП
Modern truffles can be coated in peppercorns, sweet curry, paprika, coconut, couverture etc. They can be balls, squares or other shapes.
As the concept developed, different truffle textures were created by rolling the center ganache in white confectioners sugar or finely chopped nuts.
