Howdy, kids. It’s been a while since I last posted, but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten you. In fact, I’ve been working on a couple of bigger projects in the past year, one of which I’m still keeping under my proverbial hat. (In case you’re wondering, it’s a floppy straw hat for summer. With pale yellow and salmon piping, the sort of thing you might wear to a garden party where they serve mint juleps.)
Next week, I’ll launch one of the projects I can talk about. Basically, I’ve been fortunate to spend the past couple of years meeting and getting to know folks in the fine chocolate industry: chocolate makers, chocolatiers, chocolate retailers, chocolate educators and more. Each of them has a fascinating story to tell, but like many people, spends his or her time working, not telling stories. Well, I’ve been collecting their stories and starting next week, I’ll share them with you.
It’s been really fun getting to know all these characters, and I’m excited to introduce them to you. Stay tuned next week, as I’ll be kicking off with one of the most respected folks in the biz: Gary Guittard, of Guittard Chocolate Company in Burlingame, California.
