From Mackensy Lunsford of the Asheville Citizen-Times:
During the 3 1/2 minute segment, the Rattigans will give a truffle-making demo. “The idea is to make it easy for anyone to be able to make in their kitchen without special equipment,” Jael said. It’s fitting, given the way she started down her career path.
About a decade ago, Jael, then a business student at the University of Minnesota, was struck with a notion that chocolate was her future while making truffles in her kitchen. Jael eventually loaded Dan and a handful of her worldly possessions into a vegetable oil-powered bus and struck out for Costa Rica. There, the Rattigans opened a restaurant called Bread and Chocolate.
