Lovely recipe, especially with Glenmorangie or another fruity whisky. It's a shame that there was a 1-star review on the grounds that the reviewer couldn't have whisky-I fully sympathise, but that's not really productive grounds to down-vote something. It's much more productive to try one of the many other truffle recipes here that *are* coeliac-friendly, don't you think?Good job, recipe poster Might be worth a try with Cointreau too!-20 Jun 2015
Simple recipe...always the best!Think that giving a one star for this not being suitable for coeliacs is a bit unfair, especially as it is totally untrue.-04 Feb 2015
This is not suitable for coeliacs - whisky is a big NO-28 Dec 2014
