Mr PBBB went to Brussels yesterday. We all know what happened last time he went. Yes, that's right, Brussels had 'run out of chocolate' and he brought me back a red pointy hat with a bell on it as a present.
So scathing was my reaction that this time he seems to have phoned in advance to double-check on the chocolate thing.
Valrhona, King of Chocolate. A whole goody bag stuffed full of les grandes crus chocolates. Blocks of intense, powerful dark single estate Manjari, Tainori, Albinao and Guanaja, a box of assorted chocolatey delights and some decadent chocolate sauce.
His other bags are clanking suspiciously but I've pretended I can't hear. He's in the good books for the rest of the week. Well, until Friday.
