I recently participated in an event entitled Grape & Gourmet. Local restaurants and food vendors provided 1 – 2 oz. portions of their food to over 600 attendees with all the proceeds going to a local Rotary which helps many local charities.
I served a Hazelnut shortbread cookie dipped in chocolate along with a very intense dark drinking chocolate, consisting of dark chocolate, whole milk, cream and unsweetened cocoa powder. Rich, creamy and very intense. To some I called it Hot Chocolate but it was in no way the typical American Hot Chocolate. Most tasters were pleasantly surprised by the intense not-so-sweet taste and it was a true joy to watch the smiles appear on the faces of those who merely tasted a sip of this intense beverage.
I get so much pleasure seeing others enjoy food so intensely. I want others to taste and feel what I do when I bite into (or sip) something so absolutely divine. I love creating the food and watching simple ingredients turn into something truly remarkable but it is really the most satisfying to watch others receive such enjoyment.
So to my friends, family and customers….. please know that it is my joy to serve you. I create my sweets with great passion and love for what I do (along with the best ingredients 🙂 ) And to the rest of you…. please enjoy this site and savor the photos!
Thanks again to all who take the time to check out this blog. I really appreciate the support and encouragement that my husband and I have received from many of you!
It’s a very sweet life we live.
