Let’s take a break from California updates and go back to New York life for a minute. The other day, I had the pleasure of meeting Jacques Torres, also known as “Mr. Chocolate”:

I am a huge fan of Jacques Torres’ chocolates and Chris surprised me with some a while back:

When Jacques Torres had a show on the food network, I would sit in front of the television every Saturday and drool over his creations. I remember him recreating a champagne bottle, the Eiffel tower, and some other incredibly intricate pieces of edible art. It was a pleasure meeting him and he is so incredibly friendly!

I’ll be back next week with my review of Taylor’s Refresher and Gary Danko!

Is it a problem when I can tell you the name of exactly 8 of those chocolates by sight? (I’ve never even seen the bottom left one) My favorite is the milk chocolate passion fruit heart, followed by the milk ball (bottom right), then the milk chocolate raspberry. Sometimes we’ll get a box of 24, and do half milk ball, half milk passion fruit hearts! (just not very often)

The passion fruit hearts are absolutely amazing! Jacques Torres had them out for sampling last night and I ate at least 4 of them ๐Ÿ™‚
