Blue Cheese Choco What?
Went to the Chocolate Salon, a crazy packed chocolate fair, last weekend at Fort Mason that brought out dozens of chocolatiers ranging from the biggies like Trader Joe's (!?) and the SF Chocolate Factory to the smaller, artisanal chocolatiers like Amano Artisan Chocolate and one of my faves, Lillie Belle Farms Artisan Chocolates, which had a smokey blue cheese truffle that was the perfect antidote to having way too much sweet sweet chocolate in a concentrated period of time. All that chocolate was like a shot of heroin to the arm; I was reeling. Fortunately, Lillie Belle plus a few sips here and there of wine, and yes a little quality time on the couch after, had me recovered by dinner time.
