Here’s something really nice I had in Osaka at a shop called Ceylon Tea & Bread. They served my Earl Grey tea in a press with a timer and the tart was scrumptious!
Say hello to the pink Himalayan salted caramel ganache-filled chocolate Buddha by Chocolate for the Spirit. This jolly fellow was in the press gift bag I received at the Chocolate Show. I finally got around to eating it, and in addition to being a gorgeous piece of chocolate ( I love his golden shimmer), it [...]

Traditionally on Chanukah Jews eat fried foods (like Potato Latkes) to represent the miracle of the oil lasting miraculously long. So sweets-wise a traditional food is jelly-filled donuts or Sufganiyot.

I just can’t get enough of Japan’s plastic food displays. Especially the monstrous ice cream parfaits (often with a flan-like caramel pudding sitting on top of it all). I still haven’t actually ordered one yet. They are a bit intimidating, and we are talking about $12 or more worth of ice cream and fruit here [...]

Chocolate and Caramel scones with a latte at Cafe de COPAIN in Shibuya When we were staying in Shibuya, we found this cute cafe / pub near our hotel that had an amazing selection of fresh scones and other baked goods every morning. They were cheap too! (100 yen, which is a little over a [...]
