Ok. I have a confession. I could not control myself. You would have done the same thing.
You see, we just received a gift from a friend, chocolates. My god. The best chocolates I have ever eaten. They come from a man who calls himself Mr. Chocolate. Mr. Chocolate’s real name is Jacques Torres, a onetime chef at the Ritz Carlton and Le Cirque. At his Chocolate Haven in Manhattan you can watch the cocoa beans turn into chocolate in a 360 degree view of the chocolate making process.
The chocolates range in flavor: classic dark, chipotle pepper, port wine. A perfect gift, for oneself.
