NW Style: Cacao - drink chocolate
The first time I had this incredibly rich cup of nirvana was while traveling in Barcelona years ago. Then I happened upon it again this spring at the Choclatada dinner hosted by chef Gregory Lyons in the Seattle chocolate factory of Theo Chocolates. I must say that knowing I can simply head downtown and order up a cup makes me heady.
Although this is definitely my favorite thing about Cacao there is serious competition for my attention. The proprietor has turned me onto a dark caramel chocolate topped with fleur de sel. Combining one of the most precious salts in the world with dark chocolate and caramel - it's rare for me to find a new chocolate experience and this one is brilliant.
