Perfumed, delicate but also strong in its flavour, unique in the variety of colours and shapes, chocolate is the essence of pleasure to be enjoyed slowly.
Smooth on the surface, without imperfections or ripples but with the scent of cocoa, it should not be bitten greedily but slowly dissolved in the mouth in order to catch its fragrances, flavours and aromas. Every aspect of chocolate must be captured in its entirety.
The chocolate ritual must be consummated according to times and methods that are personal and particular. Once a day or two or three: it doesn’t matter. What matters is to know how to lose oneself in a dimension that takes us far from our reality, even if for a few moments, but which seems infinite.
Therefore we entrust our passion to the words of the extraordinary poet Alda Merini who highlights its link with love, friendship and deeper emotions.
“The sweetness of the heart
comes from sweet drinks
black as night,
white like paradise.
On these chocolate baste verses or speak light.
This is the friendship born at the table
when you smile at me like chocolate “.
~ Alda Merini
