Last night I finished reading the lusciously tempting book Chocolate: A Bittersweet Saga of Dark and Light by Mort Rosenblum... yes, a non-fiction book that had me drooling!
Of course, when the author writes with loving lavishness about the finest chocolates in the world, how can I not be entranced?
Suffice it to say that after reading about how cacao trees and pods grow, how chocolate is processed, and how the finest fondeurs make their exquisite chocolate creations, I have two things on my mind:
1. I need to stock up on some very dark Scharffen Berger chocolate, and the sooner, the better.
2. My urge to make more of the wicked brownies, now hereby named either Dark Chocolate Seduction Torte or the Spice Mistress Chocolate Torte (take your pick), is growing stronger by the day... so I need to buy more cocoa powder and unsweetened chocolate squares.
I'd also like to put in a request for espresso truffles for my birthday.
