Last year my cooking obsesion was lavender. The flavor in foods was verry new to me and I had to find what could be don with it.
This year, Its chocolate. I am intrigued with useing the flavord chocolates to add richness to maine dishes. The idea to me is exciteing and I wonder what results it will bare. I am now haveing trouble finding recipes. Searching on the web leaves you with a million results for chocolate confections. I wander if anyone here would have some tried and aproved recipes for maine dishes useing the asorted flavord chocolates. A web site or perhaps a book title would do as well. A few to start with would be best though. I am especially intrested in trying chillie first and BBQ seeing as how I am a chillie fanatic and BBQ is simple enough. Any more exotic flavor recipes would be nice. Thank you.
