14TH Annual NEW YORK Chocolate Show

The New York Chocolate Show or Salon is fabulous this year. You'll find chocolate made the "old" way by American Heritage Chocolate and chocolate made the "new" way by Liddabit Sweets. Chocolate beverages are fully represented and even chocolate wine. While we are on the subject of chocolate wine--have you tried ChocolatRouge yet? The best in this new category of chocolate wines, ChocolatRouge tastes stunningly like your favorite creamy chocolate combined with a delightful dessert wine. People have been talking about the wine and chocolate combo for years but this one is truly a beautiful ode to bons bons captured in a bottle.

After my demonstration yesterday, I was interviewed by a Mexican journalist. She writes:

El New York Chocolate Show contará con la presencia de los escritores Maricel Presilla –The new taste of chocolate-, Beth Kimmerle –Chocolate, the sweet history-, Johnny Iuzzini –Desert fourplay: sweet quartets from a four-star pastry chef- y Paul A. Young –Adventures with chocolate: 80 sensational recipes-, entre otros, quienes firmarán ejemplares de sus libros y charlar con sus seguidores.

How fun to be included with Chef Maricel PhD as I was just recalling a wonderful cacao-filled evening at her restaurant with my hosts Eric Case and Curtis Vreeland. Also, not too long ago Johnny Iuzzini and I talked at length about our shared interest in candy science.

The annual chocolate show runs through Sunday. See you there!
