Chocolate, The Exhibition
My sister-in-law invited me to the The Henry Ford Museum (check out the deconstructed Model-T above) to check out the traveling exhibit called, Chocolate. We know a good thing when we hear it! We wandered through the exhibit that showcased the harvesting, processing and molding of chocolate through the ages. By the time we reached the chocolate gift shop (having discussed chocolate nibs, vintage molds & buying chocolates in Paris along the way) I needed a little something. Mission accomplished. The gift shop did not disappoint and I came away with an exotic bar by Vosges called "Black Pearl." A complex combination of wasabi, ginger and black sesame seeds encased in dark chocolate - it would be the perfect finish to a Japanese dinner. Thank you, Nicole!
