    Default Can't have too much chocolate can you?


    I'm beginning to think you can.
    Today was a mixer for the San Diego food bloggers hosted by Will at
    Eclipse Chocolat. http://www.eclipsechocolat.com/

    We were treated to our choice of tasting sampler plates.
    This one is the Artisan caramel and cheese platter. Four cheeses,
    candied mango, sugared torta and chile burnt caramel sauce.

    Chocolate olive oil fondue and fruit platter
    http://i27.tinypic.com/1qhbux.jpg

    Seasonal dessert tasting platter
    Frozen chocolate-mixed berry merlot mousse, grilled white chocolate
    carrot gateau, dark chocolate croissant bread pudding with creme
    anglaise sauce, white chocolate-chamomile lemon bar.
    http://i28.tinypic.com/2sacihh.jpg

    Stan had a roast beef and swiss cheese pannini. We also had lavender
    vanilla bean lemonade.
    http://i25.tinypic.com/2vvpcf5.jpg

    I had the goat cheese, chocolate, fig pannini.
    http://i30.tinypic.com/16gdeag.jpg

    We were given samples of the Cacao Azteca which is caramel chocolate
    ganache infused with hot chiles and dusted with sweet chili powder.
    and samples of a sage scented dark chocolate embedded with blackberry
    bits.

    I want to go back and eat each one again, separately so I can really
    appreciate the different flavors. I just had too much at once.
    Not that I'm complaining.

    It was so much fun to meet other San Diego bloggers. A great group of
    people. It was so funny, everyone brought out their cameras when the
    food came out. I wasn't the only one for a change. ;-)

    Yes, you can have too much chocolate. My daughter and I had chocolate
    fondue for New Years Eve a few years ago, and I OD'd on it. I felt so
    sick. The next day I felt very hungover (and no, there was no booze in
    the fondue). Since then, my daughter will have her beloved chocolate
    fondue, and I will eat a very few bites. You can see, since I am a
    chocoholic, that I must have felt extremely ill!

    I've never understood chocolate. I certainly don't want it in my chili.
    Okay, occasionally I like chocolate milk. Just not a big chocolate fan. I
    liked it when I was a teen but I got over it. Give me butterscotch instead

    koko,

    You sampled all those plates?!? I think I would've been sick.

    Have many happy returns,


    I was thinking there's obviously no point in palette cleansing. It wouldn't
    be at all effective, just another sample between samples.

    Thanks,

    Uh, that would be "palate." Otherwise, you're eating paint?
