If you’re flying AirTran Airways this month, take a peek at Page 18 of Go, their in-flight magazine. Natalie Portman is on the cover of this January 2011 issue, and I’m featured in the “blog feed” section with Five Picks for NYC Hot Chocolate. Hope you enjoy!
La Maison du Chocolate – “The signature Caracas hot chocolate here is a sublimely dark and sophisticated number, silky with bold flavors, and has the most elegant presentation in town.”
City Bakery – This decadently creamy classic is superbly thick with a consistency near pudding. Don’t forget to top off your cup with a plush homemade marshmallow.”
Jacques Torres – You can’t go wrong with the Wicked hot cocoa, infused with ancho and chipotle chili peppers, cinnamon and allspice.”
Otto – “Hazelnut-steeped milk is the foundation for the gianduja calda, a thick drink made with a duo of milk chocolates. It comes with buttery shortbread, perfectly suited for dunking.”
Tarallucci E Vino – “This excellent everyday hot chocolate is not too thick or too thing. For the purist, it comes completely unsweetened and explodes with pure, heady dark chocolate.”
Wanted to share this photo that Robyn posted on Flickr. There’s a definite slope to the shot that makes it look like we’re sinking, but I love it anyways. It was taken in the lounge of Blue Hill at Stone Barns prior to lunch. Right to left: Greg, Robyn, Diana and myself. View the whole set, Robyn’s photos are pretty awesome.
