food of the gods: dark chocolate & fleur du sel toasts

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.

    Ha! I was just over at and her post was also titled “Food of the Gods”, but it was a pic of baked beans on toast, (it’s subtitled: Or not…). It was pretty funny to go from that to seeing chocolate on toast. Both are food on toast and “food of the gods” but very different…

    Tyler and I have had our fill of road trips but a dinner party would sure be nice. Too bad we haven’t made any friends yet out here in rural Saskatchewan!

    A chocolate bar on a slab of bread with extra salt for good measure. This breaks all laws, and your recipe should really be sent to jail, but I fully support it (shhhhhh!)
