I have the pleasure to announce that I will be hosting the 13th edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday, scheduled for September 7. Being the chocolate lover that I am, the theme I have set is Like Wine for Chocolate*: for this edition I would like you to look for a wine that will pair beautifully with an intensely flavored chocolate cake. Sweet or dry, red, white, rosé or polka-dotted — your choice entirely!
You can use my super-easy recipe for Melt-in-your-mouth Chocolate Cake, or use your own recipe, or simply buy it from your favorite bakery. However, to make our entries comparable it should preferably be a dense and moist chocolate cake — think nut-less brownies.
All bloggers (food, wine or otherwise) are welcome to participate. Post your entry on Wednesday, September 7 — complete with tasting notes, comments and a picture of the wine and cake if you can — then email me with a link to your entry. I will post a roundup in the following days.
I am looking forward to seeing what you will come up with. Happy choco-wine tasting!
