Some Chocolate Silliness...

It's not all serious chocolate observations at the Chocolate Show this year... This is the pink ice cream spoon necklace I mentioned made by Master pastry chef, Martin Howard of Brasserie 8 1/2. Baskin Robbins sponsored the outfit with chocolate supplied by Guittard.
Martin has many talents. There's another side to Martin - the "Ask Chocolatina" side. Every year he/she performs in the Culinary theater at the show doing demos not to be missed! Last night Chocolatina made us Chocolate Poppers.
Along with tasting the demo we got to see Martin and his Variety gals dance and sing some relevant show tunes..
Et voilà the yummy Poppers! There's lots more nonsense to be had at Ask Chocolatina. Martin is multi-gifted :)
Another chocolate cure was to available at Michel Cluizel, stand #30.
Here, a chocolate test you could take, tasting and then rating the chocolates at Marquise de Sévigné stand #42. I'm going back to actually take the test. Their French chocolates are lovely..
I thought this was a witty version of the mad-about-macarons tendance (trend) that is going on in Paris. From Michel Cluizel. Must be chocolate inside...
Have I run out of chocolaterie to report from the New York Chocolate show? Two more days to go...

    That ice cream outfit is 30% chocolate, so if you found yourself macarooned on a dessert floating island in a sea of chocolate sauce, you basically could eat most of your clothing, right?
    It's helpful to have the spoon necklace along in a such circumstances..

  13. I love chocolate and love your blog! You are so talented with your watercolor brush and with your commentary - you must write and illustrate a book!
    As a chocolate fan, I love seeing how the truly "good" kind is produced and displayed. I am also now in love with Paris and wish to make a trip there someday! Thank you for sharing your photos and information about this lovely ciry.

  14. Those macaron chocolate thingies are so cute, but I figure they just taste like chocolate!..in the shape of a macaron...not that there's anything wrong with that. But. I'd rather eat a macaron? :)

  15. Okay you succeeded in making my mouth water.
    I am dying here.
    Desperately now in need of good chocolate (not what my kids have left over in their Halloween bags).

    Sigh.
