Why I want to be mentor: A lot of the processes in making truffles can be foreign to home cooks. I\'ve been there, learned through practice, and would be happy to help others.
Lesson Learned: So much of candymaking is about what\'s happening on a molecular level. Attention to detail is crucial to making successful truffles- you have to weigh all the ingredients and constantly keep an eye on the temperature of your ingredients. But the joy of creating homemade truffles is worth all the effort!
Tip: Because accurate measurements are so important, a quality food scale and digital thermometer are worth the investment. Other than that, you can make great truffles with basic kitchen equipment.
