After a four year absence, one time detective Nick Charles (William Powell) returns to New York with his new wife Nora (Myrna Loy) and their dog, Asta. Nick re-connects with many of his old cronies, several of whom are eccentric characters, to say the least. He’s also approached by Dorothy Wynant (Maureen O’Sullivan) whose inventor father Clyde Wynant is suspected of murdering her step-mother. Her father had left on a planned trip some months before and she hasn’t had any contact with him. Nick isn’t all that keen on resuming his former profession but egged-on by wife Nora, who thinks this all very exciting, he agrees to help out. He solves the case, announcing the identity of the killer at a dinner party for all of the suspects.
Renowned Chef Willem DeGroot of The Truffle Shop in Nevada City will complement the cocktail party theme with an array of decadent truffles and tortes. All truffles are created with an imported Belgian chocolate and not only taste amazing they are small works of art. Truffle Tortes contain two layers of a rich truffle filling (ganache) layered with dark chocolate cake, covered in a smooth chocolate glaze, and topped with the appropriate decoration. Truffle Tortes are available in Cafe Mocha, Raspberry and Hazelnut. Chef Willem DeGroot’s products have been sent to the White House, the Vatican, and other discriminating customers around the world. The Truffle Shop will also be serving their famous Nevada City Ice Cap.
