Chocolate. Last year we did a cooking demo utilizing chocolate and cocoa as a spice rather than a dessert, and we’ve had  chocolate “experts” come and present the process and thoughts behind their creations.

And being business, I insist on my chocolates working with my wine in pairings and being of substantial quality that my customers will come back for more. The beauty of being a small operation I order just a dozen bars of chocolate from these folks at a time and they send it out fresh to me the day of the order. It’s hard to believe what a difference a couple of months on the shelf makes with chocolate bars!

While these chocolate bars are not as cheap as Hershey’s, they’re far superior in quality proportionally! Here is a partial list of the most popular chocolates from this week’s tasting:
