It’s more than a little annoying when The Lady has the nerve to look me in the eye and utter, “I’m sorry you can’t have any chocolate; it’s not good for you.” Like she has a darn clue what’s good for me… well the hugs are quite good and the fresh chicken, that’s good as well…but, you know what I mean.
Next to her cheese kiosk, the store is installing a new counter where chocolatiers will sell…well, they’ll be selling chocolate.
To celebrate the grand opening of this new specialty food from an Award-Winning Portland Chocolatier, The Lady came up with a few pairings that pair her specialty cheeses and sea salts with the truffles that will be available.
|Chocolate Truffle||Cheese||Sea Salt|
|Chocolate Caramel||Fleur de Sel; Sel Gris|
|Extra Bittersweet||Fleur de Sel|
|Hazelnut Tower||Cyprus Flake|
|French Silk Chocolate Mousse||Le Gruyere|
|Clear Creek Pear Brandy||Rogue Creamery Oregon Blue|
|Cashew Boule Tower||Murray River Flake|
|Honey Vanilla Caramel||Fleur de Sel|
|Dark Chocolate Toffee Bites||Himalayan Pink|
|Grenada||Denhay Farmhouse Cheddar|
|Espresso Caramel||Sel Gris|
Let me add, one more time, how annoying it is that she denies me chocolate when I see her eyes glaze over with delight each time she has chocolate. If it’s so good for her, there must be something in it for me…
