Yesterday, Stephanie and I hosted a chocolate tasting at my place. She set up the chocolates and I set up the wines. I served a white (the heinz eiffel riesling), a rose, and a red. Jonathan brought some Sherry, which was very tasty. The night was very nice and we had a pretty decent crowd show up.
There were 12 different chocolates, 1o of which we got from the Chocolate Garage. The others were the best we could get at Safeway. They tasted like wax when comparing them to the Chocolate Garage chocolates, even though they were the best from Safeway. I feel very spoiled now that I have had really nice chocolate.
I took all the leftover pieces in a plastic bag with me to work, and enjoyed them on the train ride to and from SF.
