Chocolate Ambrosia

“Chocolate is, rather than nectar or ambrosia, the true food of the gods.” – Joseph Bachot

Xocolatl was a gift to humans from the Serpent God Quetzalcoatl, who was condemned by the other gods for sharing the divine bean with mere mortals.

Chocolate is truly a gift from the gods, a magic that makes the heart pitter and the skin shine.  It excites us more than any other food, and is designed from a molecular level to bring us joy.

Whether hot and mixed with chili peppers in the traditional caliente manner reserved for royals or cold chips in ice cream, few flavors are as sought as chocolate nor pair so well with so many other things, the culinary little black dress that everyone loves for the way it hides and enhances and makes every evening more beautiful, a truly divine taste.
