Ginger is a good bridge from Chocolate and Chai Theme Week, covered the past week, to today's chocolate from Rochester, New York-based Hedonist Artisan Chocolates.
Fresh-tasting shards of dark chocolate were topped with crunchy, whole green pistachio nuts and glittering bits of candied/crystallized ginger. In short, it was everything I would hope for in a Pistachio Ginger Bark. Chocolate, shown above right, is on its way to being gratefully devoured.
