Beth - The Zen Foodist

Wow. I've heard about these chocolate classes at Chuao. I'm so impressed that you attended one. And thanks for the great photos and info. Are you going to take any of the more advanced classes?


It looked so good. There are nothing better than a cup of good coffee or tea and some fancy chocolate. Little piece goes a long way. Love those pictures. I am about ready to lick the hand that in the picture. BTW, what camera you are using, your picture always look so perfect.


Hi Angie - I'd just been to the UTC shop this past week to pick up some "stuff" to send home, and even have the flyer for chocolate classes for the Missus, I must say, the shop is pretty impressive. Sounds like you had a blast!



I went with my daughter and we had a lot of fun, although next time I'll eat dinner before I go. Sure, I would be willing to do another class. I'm not all that interested in making fancy decorative chocolates myself, but I enjoyed seeing how it's done. And eating them!


Yes, one or two pieces is usually enough for me. I think it has more to do with flavor than quantity. One piece of really good chocolate can be more satisfying than a pound of the mediocre stuff.

Thanks, I love taking photos and that's what usually inspires my writing. I have 2 cameras. Well, er, actually my husband bought them for his work, but since I use them much more often, I have kind of appropriated them.

I use a Nikon D70 at home and when I know I am going out to take photographs. The closeup of the truffle at the top was from the D70.

I also have a Sony Cybershot DSC-U20 which I keep in my purse and carry with me at all times. It's smaller than most cellphones and it's great for those impromptu shots or when you don't want to attract too much attention. I used that for all of the chocolate class photos above.



Yes, it's amazing what Chuao has done in the 3 years since they started. They have expanded pretty quickly. But Michael Antonornsi told me they have done enough for now. It's still pretty much a family-run business and they want to stay local.


just discovered you - nice looking blog!
where were you when I visited san diego??!
look forward to seeing more



Thanks, Sam, and welcome. I enjoy your Becks & Posh blog (http://becksposhnosh.blogspot.com/).

Guess you'll just have to come back and visit San Diego again. In terms of being a food town it's no match for San Francisco, but in the 15 years I've been here things have certainly come a long way.
