Christmas Morning at Seven Years Old

I woke up to the smell of bacon. The scent coming from the kitchen made a strong trail seeping through the crack at the bottom of my bedroom door and finally making its way into my little nostrils. I was 7-years old and it was Christmas morning. Looking back, I'm surprised I ever fell asleep at all because i used to get so excited on Christmas Eve that I couldn't sleep a wink. I was so anxious to open presents and more importantly, sneak a peak at Santa. I used to try and tip toe around my… Continue

We are What We Choose

During my childhood, I always can we think best for ourselves. I always heard from the growing up saying that life is tough and working hard is a must for them in order to maintain current life style. Is that really true, and by working hard, playing less we can get what we want? When I grow up, I am in the same situation as well as people around me. Then I have another question in mind, when the time we get what we think we want, is that really what we want?

After a deep thought in…

Ah, Italy. The food...the chocolate...

So here are the spoils of my Italy trip. Chocolatiers visited: Luca Mannori (the pastries, my god, the pastries!), Roberto Catinari (so....much to choose from), Paul de Bondt (why we were you out of honey chocolates???), and Vestri (could not have been ruder and hotter store). Chocolatiers visited who were closed Catinari & Salza (fie! fie on you both!). And of course, Eurochocolate.

I actually came in under budget. I think. Still haven't… Continue

The best coffee and gelato in all of Rome?

Of all the things I expected to learn on my trip, learning where to get the best coffee and gelato in Rome never entered my plans. But there I was in Rome with an expert local guide (Vanessa Barg of Gnosis Chocolate) and that is exactly what I discovered. The New York Times recently also bestowed the best coffee on this place - saying that it might just be the most expensive in the world - when you add in the cost of the flight - and it would be worth it.



Near the Pantheon on the… Continue

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… Continue

The New New European Chocolate Weight Loss Diet

The first time I traveled to Europe for an extended period of time (six weeks in 1986 - way before my interest in chocolate) I managed to lose quite a bit of weight.



One of the reasons why was that I spent the first two weeks in Germany (a culture not known for gourmet cuisine) and another was that I was working a nine-day trade fair (Photokina) and so was on my feet from 9am to 8pm every day with few options for eating. For the remaining four weeks I was eating at most two meals a… Continue

Eurochocolate - my first chocolate festival

This is a tale of two attempts to see what Eurochocolate has to offer. On the first Sunday we arrived early at the park and ride area to find over 100 tourist coaches and a hlaf-mile long/4 people wide queue for tickets to get the bus to the town centre venue. There was, of course, a similar queue for the actual coaches.



We bailed on this and found the railway station - the plan being to say "hi Clay, we're out of here!" but the bus queues didn't exist so we parked and made it to the… Continue
