Simple is more. This phrase works with many things, from food, decor and experiences. Coming from fat and sugary past, chocolate was usually at the bottom of my snack list unless it was infused with some manic and sweet flavours. Funny that I am doing a chocolate review then. Shows how much times have changed.
Now that I am old and decrepit, my taste buds are refined to be able to pick up on more than just sweet. A mixture of sweet, tangy, savoury and texture in a balanced form is essential for any dish to refrain from being dull and monotone.
My favourite variety of chocolate is the 100% kind. 100% that is well developed, not too bitter and is prepared from quality ingredients that will melt on the tongue. I tried many varieties of 100% chocolate, and there can be significant differences between them even if the ingredients are the same.
That said, I am no stranger to flavoured chocolate from artisans who take great pride in their work. A chocolatier who cares will use the best ingredients possible, experiment with flavours and produce chocolate that has character. Similar to a cheesemaker and cheesemonger.
The Cheese Life blog is more than just eating cheese and writing about it. Life should not be taken seriously all the time where we (and I mean me) should take the time to indulge sometimes while remaining fit and healthy. This blog is about living a fun, happy and healthy life mixed with fattening and delicious cheeses.
This article is not about cheese.
