"Anne Desjardins, chef at L'Eau a la Bouche (Mouthwatering) in Ste. Adele, made this sausage-like cookie to serve at Kendall College, a professional chefs' school in Evanston, Ill. The nut-studded chocolate is rolled into a sausage shape and dredged in icing sugar. Sliced up, it's a delectable treat with coffee or sweet wine." Julian Armstrong, Montreal Gazette
