Well … she came to the right person for that!
Then I had another chocolate experience this week, watching Nigella. She made chocolate pasta with pecan and caramel sauce. Well that spiked my memory bank and I recalled years ago when I used to make chocolate fettuccini, turned it into a birds nest, filled it with eggs and there were our treats for Easter.
Those of you, who know me well, know that I am A CHOCOLATE LOVER. I love it, adore it and think it is the best taste ever to hit my taste buds. I believe chocolate for breakfast is the best time to eat it. Enjoy it for lunch, or wait for dinner time if you must. But definitely have supper with a choccie to complete the day. YES….. I am a chocoholic. I admit it and I declare it here on cyberspace, so it will be public forever!!
Well apparently there is science behind the fact of the taste I already knew instinctively!!
The class was very busy and full of information. Each of us used different moulds, ganache/fillings and designs. So we were able to share and take home a box of mixed chocolates that we had made that evening. My contribution was salted caramel filled Buddhas. The milk chocolate Buddha had a golden belly, while the dark chocolate Buddha had a very rosy complexion.
All this talk about chocolate has inspired me. This weekend I will experiment with some new recipes. I am thinking that there is opportunity for chocolate pastas, chocolate risottos and chocolate curries to be developed in the PCH kitchen!!
