Brought back a few pounds of chocolate from Germany! European chocolate tastes so different than American. The German chocolate is mostly milk, although i bought back some other European dark chocolates. The marzipan is fabulous.

Having an artisan whiskey tasting Thursday, and after a raspberry wine with chocolate (from the same artisan distiller).

It is such a pleasure to find like-minded people.

Back in the day before everybody was talking about single-regions, the nice people at l'Artisan du Chocolat taught me to blind-taste regional chocolate. I've led single-region tastings and matching wine and chocolate for years.

I've taken coffee-roasting and tasting, but it wasn't until I took the American Sommeliers Association's eight-week class that I learned about cigars. That was an education -- not only in tasting, but also in the similiarities in the production of wine, tea, chocolate and cigars. Suddenly, my diverse fields of training came together.

Thank you for having this group. It is a delight, finding you here.

Ahh George! Lacking in the wine dept? Isn't that one of life's necessities? Air, water, food, love, wine???

Been the driver a lot lately. Otherwise I was having trouble learning Photoshop on wine but it does help the writing on my writing I find. I choose better subjects when I am drinking a Cab Sav or Merlot.

Oh now there's an experiment! Which wines inspires creative thinking the most!
