I was intrigued by the name, not to mention the clever packaging, but this chocolate bar from Mast Bros. of Brooklyn, New York delivers. It really does taste like vanilla and smoke. It is described as smoked cacao from Papua New Guinea and bourbon vanilla bean from Madagascar, slowly stone-ground over the course of days and then aged. Who wouldn’t want a bite? There are other flavors to choose from as well. There is Le Red de Guaconejo. Or Maine Sea Salt which boasts being berry forward. The other that peaks my curiosity is Black Truffle. I would love to try a base of 74% cacao of various origins, roasted, cracked and winnowed before being stone-ground to a smooth texture, finished by blending with Oregon black truffles and sea salt from Maine. Last time I checked, this item is available locally at Spartan on S. Lamar, Central Market on N. Lamar or online here. (Cathy)
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
