Sherry's Vegan Truffles x 3

Vegan Truffles from Sherry_2.jpg

I ran in to my pal Sherry at Bleeding Heart Bakery's garage sale this morning, and I cycled home with some vegan truffles from her: two coconut curry, two vanilla coconut topped with macadamia nuts, two with almond butter topped with almonds, and all of them dipped in chocolate. The curry burned so well but the almond was the richest, with a little snap of bitter. All of them were thick and rich, just as truffles like to be. Lovely. Absolutely lovely.

As Sherry (part owner in the Handlebar) told me, and the Chicago Reader reminded us all about on the front page of their section 2, if you don't already have plans for New Year's Eve, you can get tickets for dinner and drinks at Handlebar Bar and Grill's New Gear's Eve to benefit the Bloomingdale Trail project that advocates turning an old above-street rail line into a 3-mile bike and pedestrian trail through the heart of Chicago.
