New flavors are my favorite discoveries. When at home, I'm drooling over these pictures. When I finally get on the road my mind is on vacation but taste buds are at work. When I get back it's time to start cooking.
Chocolate samples at Artisan Confections
Artisan Confections is a chocolate shop in the nearby D.C. suburb of Arlington, Virginia. It sells quality crafted chocolates made on location. I enjoyed one of its delicious monthly classes with lessons on the background of chocolate and hands-on demos about preparing bonbons. We started our class off right with a glass of wine and samples of fleur de sel and coffee-hazelnut samples.
To get here, hop off at the Clarendon Metro on the orange line.http://artisanconfections.com/
