I wasn’t sure what to expect when I walked in to Adam and Eve chocolates in Toronto. For sure I expected chocolate novelties of the type one finds in Ann Summers. What I didn’t expect was to find a serious ...

#nofilter for my dessert at @nadegetoronto in the delightful surroundings of a packed @yorkdalestyle mall. At least it was warm…
🧁🧁🧁🧁🧁 This beautiful patisserie consisted of three chewy, half disintegrated macarons, an overly sweet tart with the pastry case taken to the edge of being caught (why yes, that pastry does look a little dark does it not?), and a cream I could have injured someone with had it not softened slightly with the melting of the macaron.
If that had been my first impression of the brand, I’d never go back. This is after deciding against the dark chocolate cake with the *worst* finish I’ve ever seen commercially, clear marks in the finish of the pink bombe where someone had taken a piece out of it, and other seriously questionably finished patisserie. I’m sure for the audience in the mall of people who want to be seen in Nadege rather than looking for a quality patisserie but if this is what the best patisserie Toronto has to offer is, I’m not moving back.
Who knows somewhere better? @blogto can you help me find a more professionally finished dessert or is this the best? — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2q3Yl3D
SCIOCOLA the chocolate festival in @visitmodena in Italy is *HUGE*! Boasting over 75 stalls of chocolate and related products, there are a huge variety of types and styles of chocolate. @sciocolafestival is one of many food festivals and features the amazing local artisan producers including members of the local artisan food producers who are a part of a collective called @cna_modena which is dedicated to promoting the amazing local food.
At the central chocolate festival event tent where the to-scale life sized chocolate F1 Ferrari (Modena is the spiritual home of @scuderiaferrari it seems) is located you can learn about how chocolate is made from the pods on the tree to the tempered final result.
Once you have learned about this process, pop over to the Dolcem stand for some of their single origin chocolate. You can choose from Uganda, Tanzania, Venezuela, and others!
Ramble along the stalls until you reach @marisa__tognarelli_ who is the lovely woman in the picture here and buy some of her 24k gold topped traditional balsamic vinegar which has a hugely proud heritage in Modena. The thin chocolate shell made of Peru or Tanzania chocolate topped with 24k gold cracks easily releasing the liquid high quality authentic balsamic vinegar into your mouth to mix with the chocolate ganache. Absolutely blissful!
An annual festival, you really need to visit this gorgeous town which dates back to Etruscan times for the food, the scenery, and the chocolate festival!
