Happy New Year! I received one of the best treats for Xmas-two boxes of assorted Valrohna dark chocolate. Have you read the book CHOCOLATE? Anyways, it talks about the historical and anecdotal facts and nuances of chocolate. Great read the author lives in Paris. He talks about the mystery behind the chocolate castle of Valrohna.

I thought of your blog as I was biting on those divine, delicious and heavenly bites of the best Valrohna has to offer.

Glad to see that you're continuing on your quest.

I'm planning on taking some of the courses in Valrohna's Epicurean Academy. It's very close to where we live in France. Will tell you all about it.

Cheers and keep up the posting MIAM MIAM as we say in French :)
