For people who bake, hazelnuts are essential. No nut makes better tortes. And nowhere on earth do you find better hazelnuts than Oregon.
For years I’ve heard Alice Waters and Nancy Silverton talk up the organic hazelnuts from Trufflebert Farm. Chez Panisse was Trufflebert’s first account, back in 1992, and since then they’ve invaded every major kitchen on the West Coast. Their legend is large – but not as large as the nuts themselves. These are HUGE nuts. Think gumballs. Which means a butter-to-bitter ratio smaller nuts can only envy.
Trufflebert’s minimum order is ten pounds, so a lot of people will be getting these from me this year. Order now, divide them up and pack them into pretty boxes: at $13 a pound, they make a great gift any baker would love.
