choco choco choco lotta love

Because I have no knitting news to report (I have about a dozen more rows to knit before I begin the shoulder shaping on the Becky Wannabe sweat-urr), I feel the need to talk more about chocolate. Could it be because I just read a wonderful article at the San Francisco Chronicle web site about a former NASA tech who started a gourmet chocolate business called Cabaret Chocolates? How cool is that?!?
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to try more types of gourmet chocolates (as if I need to put it down on paper). I think I’ve only had a few new kinds, though. In NYC we went to Richart Chocolates, which was super fancy and delicious, and then of course there’s the Recchiuti chocolate we just tried. Other kinds I like are Dolfin and Michel Cluizel. Both are available from Chocosphere (incidentally, my insane brother worked at Chocosphere over the holidays packing up boxes of chocolate for lucky people. Yes, Chocosphere is based in Portland). So what kinds of chocolate do you like?
Life is short, my friends, so go out there and eat some chocolate!!!

    Mmm, chocolate! I haven’t tried a lot of upscale chocolatiers, just Harden & Huyse, Bernard Callebaut, etc. But is there really and -bad- chocolate? I am more of a purist — deep dark chocolate bars or pieces. No need for truffly or creme fillings.
