Haut Chocolat<< All Articles
Speaking of chocolate, my friend Christina Skye brought me the most unusual chocolate I’ve ever tasted. The small Vosges Haut-Chocolat bars came with detailed instructions on how to eat, savor and enjoy this treat—I swear I’m not making this up.
First off you start by taking in three giant breaths—they even suggest you find a quiet, secluded place for the tasting. The instructions go on to suggest rubbing your thumb over the chocolate to release the aromas. Close your eyes and breathe in. Then, at last, you are to break off a small piece and gently place it on the roof of your mouth and let it dissolve slowly, savoring the unique blend of flavors.
That said, I followed the instructions to the letter for my first taste. It was fabulous, everything Christina had said it would be. Then I gobbled the rest of it up.
