For eating - milk chocolate

For baking - dark anything from 50% to 60% cocoa, usually Callebaut & occasionally Valrhona.

Dark, dark, dark all the way!  Milk chocolate is okay in a pinch, but I dislike white chocolate.

Oh, who am I kidding - I like *all* chocolate 0% to 100%. 

No chocolate lasts 24 hours in my house… well, except that ubiquitous supermarket brand that I will not touch at all.

I"m a dark chocolate fan…

for eating out of hand… santander, bitter with espresso, or scharffenberger bitter…

milk… there’s only one brand that I can palate, bele____ I forget….

and for baking… I prefer callebaut, because it’s generally available, and has been quite consistent for 20 + years of cheffing..

If chocolate were a friend it’d be one needing compliance:
but bread on the other hand is a cahtartic, soulful blend of commraderie, chemistry , and respect.

My husband Jim and I are both dark chocolate fans. We especially like Valhrona for eating, because it has such “floral” overtones. Unfortunately, we are finding it hard to get. Anyone know of a store in Madison, Wisconsin that carries Valhrona chocolate bars? Sigh.

I love milk chocolate, especially Galaxy for comfort moments. In polite society, plain chocolate is the way to go though!

Anybody tried the Vosges bars?  If you want something really different, try the “Mo’s Bacon Bar”:  applewood smoked bacon and alder wood smoked salt in deep milk chocolate (41% cacao). It’s sounds gross, but it’s really good.  Not for every day, just for a change. Vosges makes other chocolate bars, too.  Goji berries and sea salt is another good one.

My favourite for eating and cooking is dark chocolate, particularly Valrhona which is fairly easy to buy here in the UK.  I will eat any chocolate though unfortunately for my figure!!!

Valrhona Guanaja, by far. I’m sort of spoiled on it now and have trouble eating regular dark chocolate. I made some chocolate ice cream the other day with ghirardeli bars from the store and could really notice the difference from my last batch which was from the Guanaja. Too bad its so expensive! Even in 1kg or 3kg blocks its pretty pricey.
