My Kind of Touring

I love food and I love to travel. Ideal travel to me is "culinary touring." Most every destination has something unique to offer the foodie, if only you know where to find it, as food gurus Alton Brown and Calvin Trillin show so well. Trillin's Trilogy is high inspiration to me.

But if you have a fetish for chocolate, REAL chocolate (yes, that's another post), there is really only one locale that will offer you satisfaction: Paris. This article offers a short connoisseur's tour of that chocolate-lover's paradise. Proceed from there immediately to Mort Rosenblum's Chocolate: A Bittersweet Saga of Dark and Light, best read with a bar of Valrhona in hand.
