One Night Twelve Kitchens

Here is a lovely lady enjoying a mini Tartufo at Madisono's table.

Madisono's was pleased to participate in the sold out One Night Twelve Kitchens fundraiser this past Sunday, April 21, 2013. One Night Twelve Kitchens is the largest fundraiser for student scholarships at Midwest Culinary Institute. This is our third year joining in with more than 20 of Cincinnati's top restaurants that treats guests to an incredible dinner along with tours of the 12 test kitchens at the Midwest Culinary Institute, to watch their dinner being prepared.

We offered a miniature version of our newest frozen creation, the Madisono's Tartufo. What is a Tartufo, you ask? Our tartufos are Madisono's gelato, covered with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate and a chocolate ganache center. We've been working on these for some time, and I would not be lying to say that we are super excited to get these into your hands. They are delicious!

The typical Madisono's Tartufo is about the size of a cupcake, but since we thought it unfair to tempt guests into filling up before dinner, these are a miniature version. Here are a few pictures showing the process.
Those are frozen balls of caramello gelato, getting ready to be dressed in chocolate. *Hand modeling by Noah.
Here are the finished tartufos, with chocolate anbrûléed (note correct accents!) sugar.
