Have You heard the history behind our heavenly CBD chocolate Truffles?
When and how did chocolate truffles come to exist?
Most people assume truffles are only the expensive fungus that the top chefs seek out to make their dish stand out and be unique, and that is true however there is always variations of any word and this is where the word chocolate truffle was born.
Well, some say that it happened purely by accident and we were made as a result of a careless chef spilling hot cream into a bowl of chocolate and mixing and thus creating heavenly chocolate truffle ganache.
Just think if that hadn’t have happened you might not have our wonderful chocolate, tasty, creamy CBD treats before you now.
It was thought that the French patisserie Louis DuFour was the creator of the first chocolate truffles. It is said that while making the usual Christmas chocolate gifts, which he was making on Christmas eve 1895 in Chambray France, Louis decided he wanted to surprise his customers with something creative and new. In order to pursue this, he made up an exquisite chocolate ganache which he shaped into small spheres. He then rolled the ganache spheres up in Cocoa powder to make them easier to touch and not have them melt completely in one’s hand. As a result of this creativity, his surprise creation became a delicacy everyone wanted.
The other opinion which is widely believed to be the actual creation of Ganache which is nothing more than a scrumptious accident merely caused by Auguste Escoffier’s assistant in 1920. The assistant patisserie had by mistake poured the hot cream he had made into a bowl containing chunks of chocolate. This was perhaps the first ever ganache created. Upon cooling, the chocolate paste could be shaped into balls which he later rolled into Cocoa.
Without these two possibilities we wouldn’t be where we are currently 🙂
The word truffle comes from the LATIN word meaning Lump. It is suggested that because the first truffles made were lumpy and coarse <due to people learning to make shape and form the chocolate goodness> that they looked similar to the sought-after fungus.
