Death By Chocolate Is the Sweetest Way to Go

Let us ask a silly question: Are you really into chocolate? (Is there any other way to be into chocolate besides “really”?) Have you ever wished for a chocolate fountain … at a regular fountain? Do you say nom nom to bon bons? Is even your Labrador chocolate?

We’re going to assume the answer’s yes, so come melt with us at The Great Indulgence February 5 through 18, featuring more sinful selections of decadent gourmet chocolate than you’ll find anywhere, bar none. Plus truffles, treats, confections, and creations to over-stimulate every chocolate lover’s sweetest tooth.  

You’ll even meet the chocolate makers and artisan chocolatiers who create them and learn their most delicious secrets. 

Here’s just a sample of the purveyors of fine chocolates we’ll have touring our stores:

Alter Eco – Friends and co-founders Mathieu Senard and Edouard Rollet make their premium chocolates with cacao from organic trees in the Peruvian Amazon and Ecuadorian Coast, then experts in Switzerland create Alter Eco’s signature bars and truffles.
Taza – Taza’s stone ground chocolate is made from unrefined, minimally processed chocolate that leaves you with a bold flavor that speaks for itself.   
Vosges – Owner and Chocolatier Katrina Markoff founded the house of  Vosges Haut-Chocolat to create a luxury chocolate experience while bringing about awareness of the world’s cultures.
And, of course, no Central Market event would be complete a host of Cooking Schools designed to show you new ways to love chocolate. We’ve got our eye on:

French Chocolate Desserts: Four Becomes More – Jean François Bonnet, Pastry Chef at Brooklyn’s Tumbador Chocolates guides you through creating Chocolate Soufflés and Milk Chocolate-Hazelnut Dacquoise, and more scrumptious confections.
Chocolate in Every Bite – Cocoa-rubbed Beef Skewers? Intrigued? As are we. David Owens, Chief Chocolatier at Taste, Bissenger’s, encourages to you to sweeten up desserts and savory dishes with chocolate.

Now this looks like it would have been my kind of event! I wish we had big chocolate festivals like this in Australia.

Southlake, just like Dallas-Lovers, is full of nose in the air customers who all believe that because they make more money than the next person, they can push and shove and cut in line and treat the staff as if they were their butlers and maids. Their children are spoiled silver spooned brats who wail and punch/kick at their plastic mothers. The wives' washed up NFL husbands are more interested in checking out the teenagers who prance around in daisy dukes and cowboy boots and I once saw a woman through the aisles with her "athletic" work-out gear on and UGG slippers! I would expect that at Wal-Mart or Target, but not Central Market! These two locations think they are in the highest class, when in actuality, they are the exact opposite. I am grateful to not have to live in their world 24/7 and feel sorry for each and every one of them.
