Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Paul's Aztec-style hot chocolate

    • mjes on December 03, 2019

      I usually cheat and simply drink Mexican chocolate but sometimes it's worth making your own spice combination, especially when the cookbook of the month includes a recipe to try. Well, sort of try ... my normal source for specialty chocolate is The Meadows but in this case "Caribbean" and "66%" were unachievable parameters. I settled for Woodblock Drinking Chocolate (70%) - origins not specified. I went with the chile, cinnamon, nutmeg I associate with Mexican chocolate then added some cardamom to justify the "I made it mine" claim. I was pleased with the results and will likely try with other chocolates as this is the drinking chocolate season.

      ...super quick, exotic take on a mole, fresh chiles bring a mellow heat that’s softened by dark chocolate... surprisingly nuanced and complex dish considering that it takes less than an hour to make.
