Let me sum up

While we're waiting to get to the next step for the Truffles, let's have a look back at what we've made today. Recall that early sponsors voted to choose four theme ingredients. We also chose to include two bonus dishes, because there were ingredients we favored that did not make the cut .

The dishes are:

Cheese

Wasabi Tiramisu
Zucchini Blossoms stuffed with fresh Feta
Fondue Moutardiere
Cahill Porter Soup

Chocolate

Chocolate Crepes with Chocolate Cream filling
Chocolate Chai Cheesecake
Chocolate Chestnut Ravioli
Classic Chocolate Truffles

Wine

Wine Sorbet
Shrimp and Scallion Linguine with White Wine Sauce
Cold Wine Fondue

Garlic

Smoked Garlic Chicken
Garlic Studded Bread
Garlic Confit

Bonus

Bleu Cheese and Leek Quiche
Pumpkin Chocolate Souffles

Sixteen dishes. Not a bad day, if I do say so myself. I can gurantee that I won't be cooking for a couple days, though!

You could do an overlapping "cream" cateogry, too, I noticed.

How is it you don't need a candy thermometer for the truffles? Because they have corn syrup instead of sugar?

Yes. You don't have to cook the ganache as long, so just bring it to a full boil and shut it right off!
