I’m leaving pastries and cookies behind for chocolate today because Sweet Week would not be complete without visiting a chocolatier.
L’Instant Cacao is a compact chocolate shop behind the Palais Royal just across the street from Galerie Vivienne. When you enter, there are piles of burlap sacks of cacao beans and on the side is a selection of about 30 different varieties of chocolate bars, neatly packaged in black with bold, white type spelling L’Instant Cacao, and a bright color square with the name of the bar and where the chocolate was sourced from. I already knew that this was going to be trouble, because I would have to pick one from all of these tempting flavors. Should I buy the Belize Maya Mountain with notes of red fruit, or the exotic Cameroon Bot-Makak, or travel to Tanzania and have chocolate with notes of yellow fruit, yadda, yadda, yadda….
