Reminder! WBW13: Like Wine For Chocolate

Like Wine For Chocolate

As previously announced, I will be hosting the 13th edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday on September 7th, with the theme Like Wine For Chocolate.

So! You have just five days to bake a luscious smooth chocolate cake, pick a delicious wine to complement magnify enhance it, and write all about it!

More details can be found here, and don’t forget to send me an email with a link to your entry once you’ve posted it.

    I’m having some email problems, so I wanted to post my permalink here as well, just in case the email doesn’t come through.

    Thank you for hosting this very sweet theme!

  • Yes!

    We weren’t able to make the cake but had fun pairing 3 different wines with an assortment of chocolates:

  • I was just in Milan staying at the Hotel Bulgari. they had this amazing garden littered with large chocolate brown couches and candles everywhere.Every night we would go sit in the garden and order a bottle of dessert wine. We had a reciotto twice along with an assortment of handmade truffles filled with fresh coconut, ginger, and coffee beans. Reciotto is my choice for a chocolate accompaniment.
