Welcome to the first day of Chocolate, Banana and Cherry Theme Week. Unlikely theme? Not so. In addition to banana splits and chocolate banana shakes topped with a cherry, there are many interesting fine chocolate offerings that incorporate these flavors.
One example: Nancy Nadel's Oakland Chocolate Company bean-to-bar-to-bonbons, that are made with rich dark chocolate from Jamaica. Her Rosebud bonbon was filled with a banana and white chocolate ganache, and the Cherry in the Snow, sprinkled with a bit of white sugar on top, contained a dark chocolate ganache and a cherry.
