This morning I wanted to write about something fun for a change, but I wasn’t coming up with anything that spoke to me. Then I opened today’s e-mail and stumbled upon something that has my head spinning.
Dorie Greenspan and her son Joshua are doing a five-day pop-up cookie bar in New York City, from February 7th through the 11th! If you are fortunate enough to live in (or are visiting) Manhattan, go to Mizu Salon at 505 5th Avenue between 58th and 59th from 10:00 a.m until only cookie crumbs remain. The cookie choices sound spectacular!
My last three blogs addressed some of the current concerns and dangers in our food supply as well as about Vandana Shiva, who is actively pushing back against genetically modified seed crops in India. Important information, but given that it’s the last day of November I think it’s time to celebrate the upcoming holiday season, so let’s talk once more about chocolate.
Anyone know where I can buy or barter extra hours? Working at both New Leaf and The Vanilla Company has left me short on time. For the past three weeks I’ve been dreaming about writing about chocolate but actually doing it has been a challenge.
I may be the Queen of vanilla, but chocolate rules my life. Whether dreaming of it, cooking with it, or allowing it to slowly melt on my tongue, savoring the sensations as it moves dreamily from one set of taste buds to the next, I’m surprised when a day passes and I haven’t eaten or drunk something chocolate. (Okay, I only use chocolate with real vanilla in it. Better?)
