For the first time in about 15 years, I’m somewhat prepared for the holidays. Christmas shopping: done. Edible treats: done. Cards: sent. I’m not saying this to gloat, because no one likes that, but to celebrate the fact that I might just be on my way to being a grown up. Whatever that means.
If you’re less prepared and are still scrambling for a gift, I’d like to take this moment for some shameless self-promotion and suggest that a chocolate-tasting class would make a lovely gift for the chocolate lover in your life.
And don’t just take my word for it. My chocolate tastings are listed in not one, but two seasonal gift lists! (Cue happy dancing.)
Says Edible Vancouver in their Winter 2011 issue: “For the curious chocolate aficionado…Eagranie Yuh’s chocolate-tasting classes will appeal to beginners and connoisseurs alike.” And The Globe and Mail’s Alexandra Gill included my chocolate tastings in her list of “lip-smacking treats for seasonal giving.”
So here’s to chocolate, and to you for your support. It’s been a great year, and I couldn’t have done it without you. Here’s wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday. See you in 2012.
