Chocolate Truffles: What I look forward to at the Farmer's Market

One of the many great things about the West Frederick Farmer's Market is that there are artisan food and craft vendors. I am excited to hear that Tim Miller of Imperial Chocolate Company will be returning to the farmer's market tomorrow. Dan and I love his truffles. We pick one flavor and buy one truffle a week and then split the truffle after a dinner. One time, I had one truffle (I think it was Dark Raspberry truffle) and we happened to have dinner guests, so I split the truffle into quarters and we ate the truffle as a dessert. I know - I should start buying more than one a week. But you know what? When you have a tiny amount of really great stuff, you appreciate it even more. Below is the message from Tim:

May's flavors will be dark (58.5% cacao) and milk/strawberry (41% cacao). I'll be trying new flavors this summer such as dark/chipotle chili, white chocolate, and a new combo I call triple treat which is a half/half white and milk chocolate ganache enrobed in dark chocolate.

Give his truffles a try if you haven't done so. You might be joining me in a weekly tasting club.
