I want to learn to make truffles. I'm interested in recipes and general tips, and I'm especially interested in flavorings, decorations, and tricks that really make them impressive.
I'm not really interested in sweet things, but I like truffles a lot (especially the drinky ones with rum or amaretto) and I'd like to be able to have something I can bring to a party or give someone as a gift that will be special.
Any notes you have about ratio, temperature, texture to watch for, etc., is helpful.
