A journey around the world with 7 chocolate stops

It was my first tasting "for official purposes".

To address the invited representatives of several European countries I've decided

to present 7 European chocolate manufacturers and, in order to reveal the

appeal, uniqueness and variety of chocolate, to choose 7 single origins from around

Sipping Chocolate Review

Crossing Max Brenner's off my list, I went back to what I knew... Naked Chocolate Cafe. Right away I noticed a difference in quality. I've never seen chocolate shine this much. And despite it being dark chocolate, there was no grit at all. I had a tiny cup of sipping chocolate. That's basically melted chocolate with a spoon. I was quite pleased, though it was hard for me to tase anything specific. I think that's because it was crowded, and noisy. Or maybe my palette wasn't…

Max Brenner - Review?

So, I went to Max Brenner in Philly for the first time, today. I decided I'm going to try to review what I have their. That way I can keep track (have something new every time), learn about chocolate, and feel like I have a good excuse to spend that much money on food.

I ordered an italian thick hot chocolate. It comes in one of their hug mugs (that doesn't have a handle, and is more wedge-shaped than…
