Last week we were participating in the Fancy Food Show. It was an intense three days with an estimated 30,000 people. I'm still a little numb but it was fun and in the end worthwhile.
After the show, a friend introduced me to Nat Bletter of Madre Chocolate and we all went for Vietnamese food and talked about mostly chocoalte. Nat is somewhat of a mad scientist and we sampled all sorts of wacky treats. I am not a chocoholic but I was sold. There's some really great stuff happening in the fine chocolate world and Nat is leading the parade, it seems to me.
