I don’t know if 303 Day was just made up yesterday or if it’s been a thing for a while now.
But guys, with this blue-sky, sunny Colorado patio-weather day, I’m not complaining. We’ve got it pretty good here, and if Denver wants to celebrate, I say she’s earned it.
Let’s celebrate 303 style. Wanna crack open a beer with me?
Artisan Chocolate Series, Part 2: Hand-Dipped Truffles
Are you ready for a visceral, tactile, get-your-hands-dirty chocolate experience?
Because I think you are.
Once you have mastered the art of tempering chocolate, it’s time to up your artisan game – with hand-dipped chocolate truffles. Delicate, crisp, tempered chocolate shells filled with creamy ganache, fruit paste, nut butters and even liqueurs, truffles are so much easier to make than you would think. Get your hands in that chocolate and make a mess – a mess that turns out gorgeous and impressive and delicious to eat!
It’s only been a day since we left Playa del Carmen, and I’m already missing the flavors of Mexico (not to mention the luxurious summer heat, the lazy days by the pool, our palatial hotel bathroom, and the pleasures of room service and housekeeping :-P).
Though I’ve always loved Mexican food (or really, Tex-Mex, which is a totally different animal), I’ve always skewed more French or classic American with my cooking at home. Mexican food is so delicious and affordable at restaurants, we usually just default to that when a craving strikes (which is often); but after having exceptional coastal Mexican cuisine at our fingertips all weekend, I’m thinking I may need to expand my repertoire!
