Cornelius is picking up the car and soon we’ll be jetting down the highway down to Seattle to see a band, eat some good food and do a bit of shopping, American-style. I love road trips…even short ones. Another thing I love is dinner parties and last night I held a small one as a send off to my two friends who will leave on Saturday by bicycle to ride to Mexico and beyond for the next 6 months. It was a wonderful evening, with lots of delicious vegan food, good red wine and lots of laughter. There’s nothing more perfect than that, really.
In keeping with this short post, I’m leaving you with this very short “recipe”. Really, it’s not a recipe but just a simple little thing to whip up after dinner that reads as an elegant end to a meal. I love dark chocolate and I love salt. Combine the two and you have a special piece of heaven put onto a little round toast.
dark chocolate & fleur du sel toasts
Cut up a baguette into rounds, drizzle with a little bit of good olive oil, place 2 squares of dark chocolate on top and sprinkle with a bit of fleur du sel. Put into a 350 degree oven until the chocolate gets a bit melty but still retains it’s shape. Remove from oven and serve. Be careful not to burn the roof of your mouth and sit back and enjoy the accolades for the best meal ever.
