More chocolate

Your cover story on the 11th regarding chocolate, “Sweet secrets,” was interesting. However after reading the article, I was led to believe that there is only one gourmet chocolate available in Nevada County. This would be incorrect.

There is another, The Truffle Shop, in Nevada City. The shop, as we locals like to call it, has hand-rolled gourmet truffles for nearly 20 years. These truffles are made from the finest ingredients money can buy. These truffles are produced by a man named Willem DeGroot. He also produces an assortment of decadent desserts for several local restaurants. His truffles have a richness and smoothness I have never tasted before. He also makes a raspberry truffle tort cake, which is to die for. I just thought your readers would like to know that Nevada County is lucky enough to have two different choices for gourmet desserts.
