Behind The Scenes at Chocolate and I New York

We got our hands dirty at Chocolate and I New York 2010

Chocolate is a magical word.

By nature, it brings people together. From laborious beginnings mapped out by cacao farmers (the often-forgotten heroes of this sweet world), to artisan chocolatiers who have made chocolate-making a legit art form, to chocolate lovers (like yours truly) whose hearts have been stolen forever—love for chocolate seems to be as universal as love itself.

Shoutout to Virginie, Scott, Marco, and the rest of the CINY team for a fantasmic chocolate celebration!

Due to a mad Valentine's week and excessive chocolate-eating, No-Bake Mondays is postponed to next Monday. This chocoholic is staying in bed today.
