Cacao Sampaka

Cacao SampakaI've become a chocolate snob. Actually, I knew that, but I didn't realize how much of one I have become. Maybe I have always been one; I'm not sure. I was born into a family of chocolate aficionados after all, and my mother is French, a sure sign that we were destined to have at least one foodie in the family. Over the past few months, I fell into a deep writer's slump. I couldn't seem to find the…See More

"I never thought I would like any of the more savory herbs with chocolate, but I tried a sage truffle and a basil truffle that were both delicious. The basil with white ganache you mention sounds intriguing!"

"Well, I just found out that it's actually wood infused, but it's still very interesting. One bar was made with Palo Santo wood-it's smoked, and the chocolate absorbs the flavor. The other chocolate I tried from that company was made…"

Cocanu Chocolate Review

Cocanu Chocolate ReviewSebastian Cisneros, the founder of Cocanu.Just the other day, I got involved in a lively discussion on a forum about the strangest chocolate combinations we have ever tried. I have to say that there are some strange unions out there, and I have tried quite a few of them --mushrooms, olives, bacon, curry, figs, Pop Rocks and peppercorns, to name a few -- some surprisingly delicious…See More

"Temperature can definitely be a factor, but so can humidity. Hot, humid days make molding chocolate difficult. It could be that the molds aren't cold enough, though. If necessary, put them briefly in a temperature-controlled refrigerator to…"

The Good Evil Bar Review

It arrived! The Good Evil bar landed on my doorstep early in the week, and the true chocoholic in me emerged. Like any typical junkie, I had to make excuses and skirt the issue when the Man confronted me after he discovered that there were only two squares of chocolate left for the review. Someone had to sample it beforehand, no? Hey, he's lucky he…

Hi,

Have you tried Ritual made in Denver?  And is Solstice, made in UT, available in Boulder?  They are a new maker with some very tasty bars.

Hi Ggirl, I'm the guy that does the beans for the Good and Evil bar here in Peru.  I'm thrilled that you loved it. Your entry rang true -- I can't count how many times I've had to yell at the Lady down here for cleaning out my chocolate / nibs stash ....... that I need for business!  I'll book mark your blog, keep up the great writing.

saludos, brian
