FRANNIE AND PEARL are La Mancha Goats known for their fine quality milk which Diane translates into an exceptionally creamy chevre cheese. You’ll be able to use any soft goat cheese found in the gourmet cheese section of your favorite epicurian shop.
I highly suggest inviting one or two good friends over to help with the truffle rolling and coating along with a bottle of good wine. At home you do not need to use latex gloves…however in our video we do as these deliciously cream and rich truffles are sold on the website. And as Diane, said in the video, ” you have to learn not to even touch the tip of your nose if it itches”.
