A Heavenly Bar of Chocolate

At the recent Big Chocolate Show held in Manhattan, one chocolate stood out for me. Conexión’s 70% Pineapple & Pink Salt single origin bar. With such a festive orange and yellow wrapper from Ecuador, I expected joy and got it.  A first bite had a tinge of saltiness which led to chewy tropical candied pineapple that made music in my mouth and mind. Now this was exactly what I could eat slowly while savoring each morsel.

Slowly? Who was I kidding?

Lavender Wildberry Ice Cream

Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream. Creamy, rich and wholly addictive. Imagine fragrant juicy blackberries flecked with lavender oil. This duo is enough to let willpower languish. And why should you? Give in to frozen joy! Très chère, I couldn't bring myself to tell anyone how much I was forking out for a pint. One bite was all I needed for this frozen addiction to take root which hasn't abated. Hurrah for wildberry lavender ice cream! C'est magnifique.

Not just any rib - this rib

Do you dream about ribs? I do! The ribs I favor above all are the tamarind ribs at Indian Accent. Here two ribs appear to mesmerize the diner. Tangy, meaty, fork-tender. Eat these with your fingers. Close your eyes and savor each bite. Sheer nirvana!
