Weird Chocolate...NOT!

Hot Chocolate Chocolat Chaud at Fauchon, watercolor on paper, 12" x 15"

Who saw the BORAT movie out there? Admit it! OK, so this is another cup of hot chocolate...but I don't have any watercolors of so-called "weird chocolate"...
What the..?

The French are way ahead of us when it comes to weird chocolate - ABSOLUTEMENT! If you went to Arizona, would you find "cactus" chocolate? I don't think so. We have some serious catching up to do in the U.S.!
Edible dress... I know I said over and over get to know your cacao beans... Is this carrying it a bit far? And look at those chocolate bars hanging from the waist. You can always eat your dress if necessary...from the Salon du Chocolat couture show.Want a schmear on your bagel ? Hmmm...this was at the Paris show. They offered to give me "a schmear" (on my face!) No merci :) My Dear French Husband... You could write a letter to a loved one using chocolate! Jadis et Gourmande specializes in chocolate letters. You compose the message....Cinderella? Jean-Paul Hévin spent days (!?) creating this wonderment for last year's Salon du Chocolat. It's not so easy to make a REAL shoe out of chocolate evidently.Is this little girl thinking, "Hmm...will he give me the crumbs when he's done sculpting his chocolate?"
 Who gets the crumbs..?

  13. Well, now we know the mystery of why there aren't more chocolate shoes out there. That's hilarious. I have heard that chocolate is good for your skin so you might want to reconsider next time you're offered a smear of chocolate:-)

    I saw Borat, but I almost think he's funnier in "Da Ali G Show." How he does what he does with a staight face is beyond me...he's insane. Your work is lovely, as usual...enjoying it today in Tucson AZ.
