Quoting: Purple Library Guyand a mug of cocoa.
Share the cocoa, would you, please? The weather's getting colder now!
Well, I'll do my best. So yesterday, my wife and I went to my favourite fancy patisserie place, Thomas Haas, and along with some very nice pastries I got some absolutely fabulous deep dark hot chocolate, made with a really nice 70%. Strong, very strong, and thick, but because 70% not too sweet. We strolled along the beach and sipped and munched.

Normally at home I don't make hot chocolate, I make cocoa, with cocoa powder, sugar and milk. Lately I've been using cocoa from this place that makes all kinds of very artistic and high quality hot chocolate, called Cocoa Monk. I bought the guy's cocoa powder once, thinking "I probably won't do this again--stuff's foolishly expensive and probably no better than what I usually use." It was so much better. When I went back to get more I asked him why; he said most cocoa powder you get, even "gourmet", has almost zero cocoa butter and so it's crap, doesn't convey the flavour well. His does have cocoa butter. Sounds reasonable. As a result, the cocoa I make is some of the best you're gonna taste. Especially after I add a bit of Calvados or Grand Marnier.

That's all I can manage over the interwebs, I'm afraid.

Quoting: tuubiThe trailer really does evoke some traumatic memories of dig dug. The style is spot on. I bet I'd be very bad at this one as well.
