Is it a truffle or a baked treat? Truffle Gateau is both. Linda Bartlett and her daughter started Truffle Gateau with an original recipe for a baked truffle. In 2006, their dark chocolate edible gold Truffle Gateaux was the exclusive chocolates to the U.S. Tour of King Tut!! The award-winning confections are produced in Sacramento and sold nationwide online and in stores like Neiman-Marcus.
