The following is my answer to a question you may not have asked: Yes, the dark chocolate version of today's Grandeur (34% hazelnuts) bar was just as good as yesterday's Milk Chocolate version. The treatment of the whole, toasted nuts and caramelized nut pieces was superb.
And, this concludes (Day #8) of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week. Alas, no time for a nice pour of Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) into some hot chocolate, and other possible combinations of hazelnuts and cacao. Maybe next year.
Another milestone: tomorrow will be the 5th anniversary of my deciding to eat a different kind of chocolate every day. Five years and more than 1,800 chocolates later, I have (unbelievably) many thousands more chocolates to investigate. And, a good place to research new chocolates and combinations is with a small, chocolate tasting community, such as The Chocolate Garage. Thanks to all who helped celebrate this weekend's milestone.
