Photo of the Day, February 19, 2013: Truffles by Coquette


S’Mores Truffles by Coquette


Valentine’s Day was sweeter than ever this year. James made a finger-licking lobster dinner, and we polished off our last bottle of Pol Roger champagne. And then we opened the beautiful box of truffles I purchased at the Greenpointers Valentine’s Day Market the weekend before.


Jennifer uses the finest quality ingredients, including E. Guittard chocolate, down to the smallest detail. You can taste the difference. I had tried Jennifer’s truffles at the market, but James bit into the first one and was clearly transported to that divine place where you are rendered speechless except for the ability to utter “mmmmmmmmmm” just above a whisper. “I know,” is all I had to say.


A dozen of these plump beauties come nestled in a black box that Jennifer designed to look like a book. Her first collection includes several different truffles:

  1. Aurora – Champagne and brandy infused ganache enrobed in dark chocolate

  2. Berry – White chocolate raspberry ganache dipped in a white chocolate couverture

  3. Colette – Salted caramel and 55% cacao couverture sprinkled with Fleur de sel de Guerande from the marshes of Brittany, France

  4. Katherine – Classic dark chocolate truffle filled with creamy dark chocolate ganache

  5. Layla – Ground pistachio and milk chocolate ganache enrobed in milk chocolate

(The descriptions are all Jennifer’s, proving she is as good descriptive writer as she is a chocolatier.)

I am so happy to welcome Jennifer and Truffles by Coquette to the market scene. Luckily for us all, Jennifer is going to bring her collections to the upcoming Queens Traveling Market on March 16th! Follow Truffles by Coquette on Facebook for news and updates. And definitely keep an eye on her lovely blog to follow the ins and outs of a chocolate entrepreneur.
