Meet our Chief Truffle Maker
Jean-Marc Gorce has always loved chocolate.
As a young boy he would obsessively raid the pantry for chocolate, not leaving even a crumb to share. As a result, his mother would often hide her personal stash of sweets. But the curious Jean-Marc and younger brother, Ludvic, would eventually discover all of their mother’s hiding places. When she realized her bounty was diminishing, she would confront the boys, and Jean-Marc would mischievously blame it on Ludvic. Oh, the chocolate struggles of his youth. With hindsight, one can see the beginnings of a truffle maker here.
In France, during the Christmas and New Year's festivities, friends and families greet each other with cheer and merriment and chocolate truffles. As the boys grew older, they regularly participated in this tradition of making but mostly eating chocolate truffles. Every year, their mother would create batches of vanilla-infused, dark chocolate ganache nuggets and roll them in cocoa.
Our bite-sized delights at XOX Truffles build on Maman’s recipe. Chef Jean-Marc adds his own culinary technique and signature flavors to craft each truffle into a delicious and decadent experience.
