CHOCOLATORY

by The Chocolate Dictionary

The adoration of chocolates. Not in the sense of prostrating oneself before them, but in the sense of treating chocolates as if they are the first things one has tasted following a long fast; of being acutely sensitive to their tastes, textures and “mouthfeel”; and of marveling at the creativity, the meaning and the artistry that goes into creating such exquisite moments of gastronomy. Sometimes just the idea or concept of what a chocolate means is enough to trigger chocolatory – as in the intimation of caramels and ganaches sensed, for example, in the shade of a chapeau, shaded by an umbrella, shaded by a willow tree susurrating in France.

An intimation of caramels and ganaches sensed in the shade of a chapeau, shaded by an umbrella, shaded by a willow tree susurrating in France.
