So lucky having participated in Salon du Champagne in Geneva, Hotel Kempinski. I tasted some extraordinary champagnes on the guidance of best sommeliers of Switzerland and of the world.
I asked from the best sommelier of the world 2013, Mr Paolo Basso, would he combine any champagne with chocolate. “Yes, only a sweet champagne, which generally are not very good quality.”
My market lady insisted and was right as always: I should finally give a try to Aloe Vera. I had in mind of course to develop it to chocolates but as I got to know it little closer, I believe it might take another go. The slimy texture makes problems as also the taste: it doesn’t have the one, if you don’t calculate the acid fleshy smell and taste.
So far I have made juice of it: cut and mixed it with ginger, orange and marjoram. Mixed it with jasmin tea and honey. Mixed it to face cream with coconut oil and pampered my hair with Aloe Vera massage.
Have you tried Aloe Vera in desserts and could share your experiences combined with chocolate? I’d love to hear it!
I didn’t know that this exists: World Wide Headquarter of Easter Bunnies. Any guesses where we are ?
Here some added photos as this seems to be a difficult one.
I was delighted to visit Liliane Stucki in her Geneva atelier. And to have a try with clay forming to ceramic.
I didn’t get very far away but was positively surprised of the similitaries with baking and chocolate making.
As you can see from the results I better leave it to Liliane, though. She handles it much more skilful.
We followed the Mövenpick Ice Cream Master and remade the Coupe Romanov, strawberries with vanilla ice cream.
Heaven was very near now in Montreux. With gorgeous live jazz at the background.
July 7 is the World Chocolate Day. And my father’s birthday. They go well together, because he loves chocolate.
This is for you all and for my dad who is eating every day something chocolatic up there over the clouds. Happy bday daddy and thanks for guiding!
