Ahh, the elusive Kate Dowling truffle. Chocolate Hounds know all about these hard to find homemade confections. A few weeks out of the year a friendly woman appears in North Berkeley offering samples of heavenly ganache, and that's the only time you'll see them. No retail space, no farmer's market stand, no website, until now.
Cheeseboard started carrying boxes of the Dowling truffles. A box of eight large truffles is $15. They plan to carry them through the holidays, and if demand is high enough, after the holidays as well.
