Saturday, February 19th: February Truffle Crawl

February Truffle Crawl
Starts near Rockefeller Center Skating Rink, NE corner
2pm
Free

We’re pleased to announce a crawl for both lovers of sweets and lovers of environs north of 14th St. (We know, it’s been all Village, all the time, these past couple of months.) On February 19th, we’ll be exploring the wonderful world of chocolate truffles!

Named after the mushrooms of the same name, original truffles were made of chocolate ganache and rolled in cocoa. As truffles developed, they came to be enrobed in chocolate, giving us a delightful profusion of varieties. Champagne truffles, a particular favorite around this time of year, feature ganache mixed with champagne for the filling. Liqueur truffles are also offer an interesting take on the classic sweet.
