I’m not one for sappy, greeting card holidays, but since it’s Valentine’s Day, and I’m behind on my photos of the week, for this thirty-second one, I give you a big, gooey, heart of darkness.
Why this woman was slathering chocolate couverture over what appears to be a large, wooden heart in the kitchen at the famous chocolatier, Bernachon, in Lyon, France, with a blow dryer in one hand, I still have no clue. Was it for a window display? Was it a special order item for a quirky lover with a strange sense of humor? Was it for a presentation at Sirha, the gargantuan, international food trade show that coincided with the Bocuse d’Or and the World Pastry Cup?
