So let any man who has drunk too deeply of the cup of pleasure, or given to work a notable portion of the time which should belong to sleep; who finds his wit temporarily losing its edge, the atmosphere humid, time dragging, the air hard to breathe, or who is tortured by a fixed idea which robs him of all freedom of thought; let such a man administer to himself a good pint of ambered chocolate … and he will see wonders.
~ Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, in Pleasures of the Table
No, I am not that tired, haha, but gaaah, it is humid where I am.
I got that hot choco from Camiguin. I’ve been having it for breakfast for a few days now and I’m getting heart palpitations, ack! Now my mother would say hot choco made from the tablea (tablets of pure cacao or cocoa powder) from Bicol is richer and I’m not arguing with her because she might harumph and garumph and refuse to prepare it this Christmas as she always does, haha.
Where do you get yours and how do you like to enjoy it? (I won’t tell my mother, I promise.)
