Champagne Truffles

It is important to use an excellent quality chocolate when making truffles since it is the primary ingredient. Valhrona is my first choice and Callebaut is my second. BRING THE CREAM TO A BOIL and pour it over the cut chocolate. Allow to stand 1-to-2 minutes and stir smooth. Beat in the softened butter and cool to set. Beat with an electric mixer (using a paddle attachment if available) on medium speed until light. Beat in Cognac. Pipe out small truffles on parchment or waxed paper with a pastry bag fitted with a 1 2-inch plain tube. Refrigerate to set. Melt the chocolate. Sift the cocoa into a deep pan. Dip the truffles in the melted chocolate and then deposit them in the cocoa, shaking the pan to cover them. After the covering sets, shake the truffles in a strainer to remove the excess cocoa.

Chocolate truffles

This is more one for the grown ups with its slightly sophisticated dark chocolate taste. Truffles are a delightful way to finish a meal. Serve on a pretty dish or, if you can get petit four papers (like mini muffin cases) to put them in, so much the better. Wrapped in coloured or glittery paper, they make excellent presents, too - you can choose a liqueur to suit the occasion. minutes cooking time 5 minutes makes 20 truffles 4 Use a dessertspoon to scoop out the truffle mixture.

Truffles Map Europe

Robert Abbett Gallery

Tuber melanosporum (Perigord black truffle) production in Quercy, France, since 1920 (Fauconnet and Delher 1998). However, there is mounting concern that the quantities of mycorrhizal mushrooms that can be harvested are declining. While articles with titles like Disappearing Mushrooms Another Mass Extinction (Cherfas 1991) are somewhat alarmist, it is undeniable that there have been catastrophic declines in the harvest of some mycorrhizal mushrooms over the past hundred years. For example, at the beginning of the twentieth century production of the P rigord black truffle is estimated to have been 1000-2000 tons, but modern production, even in a good year, is often less than 10 percent of this. Forty tons is considered a bad year, 150 tons a good one (Lefevre and Hall 2001, Olivier 2000). The official figures for truffle production for Quercy, France, illustrate this trend well, as do those for matsutake harvests in Japan. Many suggestions have been advanced to explain the decline....

The elusive truffles

Finally, let's focus on the elusive truffle, a fungus that most of us will never have the chance to taste because the demand far exceeds its supply. It is said to have a wonderful flavor but, like its highly overrated companion, caviar, it is reserved for wealthy diners. Truffle is also called earth nut. This name describes its natural habitat underground. The truffle is small and knobby, and one can mistake it for an acorn or a rock. It has no stem. The solid interior has the consistency of wax, and it chips into flakes, like candle wax. Truffles have an unusually high glutamic acid content (naturally occurring monosodium glutamate, MSG). This partially explains their popularity in the kitchen. They not only contribute their wonderful mushroomy flavor, but also accent the flavor of any food, as is characteristic of MSG (see Flavorings chapter). Truffles grow in a symbiotic relationship with certain trees, mainly oaks. Since they grow underground, the truffle hunters who know where...

International Standard Units Of Measure The Metric System

The metric system units of measure for weight are the kilogram and gram. If you look on the label of any item sold by weight, it is common to see both the traditional United States and the internationally recognized units of measure for weight listed. If you purchase an imported item, such as truffles from France, it is possible that the only unit of measure on the label will be in grams and not pounds or ounces. Table 2.4 lists the international units of measure for weight and the traditional U.S. equivalents.

Filets Tournedos Filet Mignons

Filet steaks may be sauced and served exactly like the beefsteaks in the preceding recipes, but because of their expense they are usually surrounded with fine wines and truffles or other elaborations. They cook in 8 to 10 minutes, and the sauce takes about 2 minutes, so you can afford to spend a bit of time on the vegetables and garniture you wish to serve with them. Here are three classical combinations. See also the vegetable suggestions for steak on page 292.

What to choose in cooking

So what type of mushrooms should you use in your cooking If you have an unlimited kitchen budget, use fresh black truffles ( 1300 a pound or 3000 a kilo) and morels from France. They will be a sure hit among your guests, particularly if you can weave their cost into the dinner conversation. But most of us work with a more limited kitchen budget in which the other end of the spectrum is the more likely scenario, even considering to rescue the mushrooms on the reduced-for-quick-sale shelf of the supermarket.

Marinade for Filet of Beef

2 or more canned truffles and their juice Place the raw, trimmed filet in an enameled or pyrex dish or casserole. Pour on the wines and mix in the seasonings, herbs, shallots or onions, and truifles. Cover and marinate for 6 hours or overnight, turning the meat and basting it several times. Drain and dry the meat thoroughly before browning it. Include the marinade, but not the truffles, with your braising liquid. Reserve the truffles for your sauce.

Remove shrimp from the pan and place on a large plate. Drizzle the shrimp with truffle oil. Garnish with parsley. This recipe yields 12 stuffed shrimp.

Collecting Wild Mushrooms

Throughout continental Europe the arrival of autumn brings with it some unusual sights and seemingly bizarre behavior. For example, in France, Germany, and Italy, lines of empty cars can be seen parked next to what might seem rather unprepossessing areas of woodland. Inside these forests are people with their heads bent down, apparently wandering about aimlessly. Occasionally they pick up a mushroom, carefully inspect and smell it, and then perhaps nibble a corner before either spitting it out and tossing the mushroom aside or consigning it to their basket. People with truffle dogs or truffle pigs are much less likely to be seen. They tend to do their hunting in secret, keeping the location of valuable truffle beds to themselves.

Wine Champagne and the Making of French Identity in the Belle Epoque

The noisy battle between the two Beans attracted the attention of other members of the Kingdom of the Little Peas. A truffle from Perigueux, a stick of butter from Isigny, an asparagus stalk from Argenteuil, and a wedge of cheese from Brie vaulted into the raging conflict. Amidst the cacophony of competing claims, other vegetables, cheeses, and wines joined in demanding

Mousses Froides Mousselines

The first recipe in this section may be packed into a decorative bowl and served just as it is the rest must be molded. If they are molded plain, without a jelly lining in the mold, they should be glazed with jelly after they are un-molded, or with a type of cliaud-jroid sauce such as the one described for the fish mousse on page 563. They may then be decorated with truffles, tarragon leaves, jelly cutouts, or, if it is a fish mousse, with designs of shellfish meat.

Fish Aspic Galareta z Ryby

This aspic was probably served as an ornamental component of a larger display dish. It can be treated in much the same manner as quince or medlar paste, with which it was sometimes served. If the aspic is cast in shallow pans, it can be cut into shapes to create the sort of inlay work that characterized truly elaborate presentation pieces at court. Aspics of various colors, hard cooked eggs, mushrooms or truffles, all of these ingredients could be assembled to create a coat of arms or some other appropriate figure. The most common method, however, was to fill halves of hard cooked egg whites (after removing the yolks) with the fish aspic and letting this set. This was done at manor houses and in homes of lesser nobility, a conceit worthy of the trouble since the yellowish aspic looks like egg to begin with. To serve as a standing aspic, turn out the aspic and send to the table on a fine dish well ornamented with flower petals, buckler leaf sorrel, parsley, cooked crayfish, truffles,...

Cultivating Mushrooms

Depending on how they obtain nutrients, mushrooms are either non-mycorrhizal (saprobic or parasitic) or mycorrhizal. Saprobes gain their nutrition from dead plants and animals. Many can be cultivated, with varying degrees of difficulty (Stamets 2000). Some, like the morels, require very specialized conditions, while others have never been cultivated (Anonymous 1997, Stamets 1993). In contrast to the saprobes, parasitic mushrooms, such as the honey mushroom (Armillaria mellea) and some bracket and oyster mushrooms (for example, Pleu-rotus eryngii and P. ostreatus), obtain their nutrition from living plants, often causing severe damage to them in the process. Mycor-rhizal or symbiotic mushrooms also derive nutrients from living plants, but instead of harming the host plant they assist its growth by stimulating the uptake of nutrients from the soil. Edible examples include the truffles (for example, Tuber), matsutake (Tricholoma mat-sutake), porcini (Boletus edulis), chanterelle...

Finding Substitutes for Favorite Foods

One of the best don't-fall-off-the-program techniques is to eat foods that substitute for a highly desired food. If you lust after any of the above, or for blintzes, lasagna, Yorkshire pudding or even chocolate truffles, ice cream, cheesecake or strawberry shortcake, the answer lies in using the ingenious substitutes for these foods I've provided in the recipe section or through our website at www.atkinscenter.com. Learn to use them. They can be just as much a part of your menuplanning as grilled chicken and tossed salad. (Remember Not all these recipes and products are suitable for the Induction phase.)

DOMESTIC TRUFFLES Two varieties of domestic truffles come to the market. They are different from imported varieties in both size and smell. Like imported truffles, they are available both black and white, the white being more plentiful and slightly cheaper than the black. Most come from the West Coast, especially Oregon. Some domestic truffles have a camphor-like smell, which is not acceptable. The supply is very limited. IMPORTED TRUFFLES Imported truffles come mostly from France and Italy. Both black and white varieties are available, the black variety being slightly more abundant than the white. The flavor is carried in the volatile oils, and is easily imparted to other foods. Truffles can be successfully flash-frozen. Seasons White truffles October to December. Black truffles November to December. Size Varies from 1 oz (28 g) to 4 oz (112 g) larger...

Mushrooms are really neither vegetable nor animal. Although technically classified as plants, fungi curiously straddle the plant and animal kingdoms. They don't make food from sunshine and air as plants do. Instead they extract it from decaying matter and make it into fresh and concentrated protein food for us, the way a cow turns grass into the fine protein foods of milk and meat. Molds (for making antibiotics), yeasts (for making bread, brew, and vinegar), and truffles are related fungi. Mcilvanea & Mycophile Journal of American Amateur Mycology.

I attended the class with my daughter Amanda, her bridesmaids and future mother-in-law, says Jo Ann of Damiansville, IL. I got the recipe for Chocolate Truffle Cake at the class and made it for Amanda's bridal shower. It was a big hit. Desserts are definitely one of her specialties. And with Chocolate Truffle Cake as a shining example of her handiwork, it's no wonder she's asked to bring the dessert for every family occasion.
