Making Chocolates Requires Caution Tape
Alternate Title: Decorating Homes with Genuine Chocolate Flakes is a Thing…Right?
My apologies for the long radio silence. Apparently I’ve allowed taking pictures of chocolate and eating chocolate to interfere with writing about chocolate. (In my defense, how am I going to have anything to write about if I don’t get to play with it?) The pictures I’ve taken are available on Instagram or right here in the photo gallery. Thanks to the recent rains, there were fresh flowers available to help decorate some shots. I thought flowers looked lovely with the stunning (and very tasty) Marou Lam Dong 74% chocolate from Vietnam.
Today, I’m mainly here to tell you about how much I got teased for the dedication to my art.
(Those are my words. If you would have asked the bystanders, they would have said I got teased because I made a mess.)
