Day of Delicious

The biggest celebration of Dia de Los Meurtos or Day of the Dead in America is at Hollywood Forever cemetery in Los Angeles. Part art walk, part street festival, all souls are welcome. The tradition is rooted in the ancient civilzations of Mesoamerica (Maya, Aztec and more) and are the same ones that developed chocolate from their native cacao trees. People decorate alters with memorabilia, marigolds, candles, bread and sugar skulls to attract the souls of their beloved departed. In Mexico,…See More

Chocolate Doesn't Go With Velveeta™

Posted on September 9, 2009 at 2:00pm 11 Comments

Call my crazy but I just don’t want the makers of Velveeta messing with my Cadbury bars. Kraft Foods bid (underbid?) $16.7 billion for Cadbury this week, declaring they were offering stock holders a 42% increase on Cadbury’s median share price. Cadbury pushed back, declaring the proposal undervalued their stock and they were confident in their "stand-alone strategy and growth prospects as a result of...strong brands, unique category and geographic… Continue

Chocolate Balsamic Vinaigrette

Posted on September 5, 2009 at 1:00am 0 Comments

One of the many things I learned in the the cookbook writing process was how to spell “vinaigrette”. It’s one of those words that looks wrong even when it is right so thank you, eagle-eyed editors. Here’s the recipe - it has garlicy, sweet and sour notes which you can adjust by using more or less dark chocolate.









2 tablespoons balsamic



vinegar



2 tablespoons rice wine

CHOCOLATE TANNIC ATTACK

Posted on August 10, 2009 at 10:31pm 2 Comments

Oolong tea from Taiwan infused milk chocolate from Belgium. Dark chocolate from Venezuela drank up black tea from Ceylon. And Napa Valley red wine seeped into organic chocolate from Hawaii. Such exotic flavor and terroir matchups were among the many found at the 55th Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City in June. What inspired these new combinations? Large amounts of flavonols, the antioxidant-powered chemicals that occur naturally in wine, tea and… Continue

When is the next Fancy Food Show. Over the years, I've exhibited several times. LOVE that show. I also produced a couple of trade shows at the Javitts for several years. It was the only thing I did "outside" of the food industry.

Definitely going to be fun to participate in this site. Great idea to set it up! See you at Fancy Food Show in NY or maybe in Nashville for Pastry Forum. Otherwise, will send you an update on blog, book, etc. Cheers on the chocolate trail!
