When I was writing Discover Chocolate back in the latter half of 2006, just as the editorial deadline was approaching, the editor and the publisher asked me to add a short section about pairing chocolate with beer.
With the benefit of hindsight – gained between the day I submitted the completed manuscript and the day the final films were sent to the printer – I had completely changed my mind on the subject.
If there is one section of the book I would go back and completely rewrite if I could, it is that section.
When most people think about chocolate pairings the first pairing that comes to mind is dark chocolate and red wine. The next foray might be to dark chocolate with sweet wines like Ports. These are not bad ideas, in my mind, they are just conventional ideas that don’t excite me very much. What about beers? What about other kinds of wine – other kinds of chocolate? What about cheese and chocolate? And cheese and chocolate and wine (and/or beer)? And ... what else?
That is the ground we are going to be exploring in this episode of TheChocolateLifeLIVE. And today’s episode includes a twist that even M, Night Shyamalan would approve of – a twist from a very unexpected source.
