Gay Landry introduces new truffle flavors at Affairs.

There’s sweet news from Gay Landry at Affairs, the University Place cafe, confectionery and home to homemade cakes, pies, tortes and all manner of desserts. The shop began its reputation with truffles, but not for 15 years has there been a new variety.

Until Saturday, when Landry hosted a Truffle Release Party….

That’s when Landry premiered three flavors:
• Bourbon spice – had a hint of Christmas with clove and nutmeg accents.
• Tiramisu – like the classic, with brandy, orange and chocolate.
• Cabernet – had the tang of red wine balanced against dark chocolate.

Find the truffles at Affairs:
Where: 2811 Bridgeport Way W., University Place
Contact: 253-565-8604or www.affairs-chocolate.com
