How to Eat Chocolate by National Geographic
« on: February 04, 2014, 05:57:38 AM »
wak lang subo ng subo.EH. :)









-Begin by snapping the chocolate in half. Inhale and ponder the aromas you can sense: cocoa, vanilla, smoke, malt, etc.

-Let the first bite be small to “warm up” the tongue, which can taste only sweet, sour, salty, bitter. Some chocolates can hit all four tastes.

-The second bite is the one that counts. Suck on the chocolate and feel how it melts, sense the texture (grainy or smooth?). Is it sweet or dry?

-Don’t rush on to the next bit. Enjoy the aftertaste—good chocolate will offer new and subtle flavors after a few seconds.

-Whether eating truffles or bars, always start with softer flavors and move slowly up to stronger varieties.

-Don’t ever eat more than four or five different kinds of chocolate at a time. You will overwhelm your sense of taste and ruin the experience.

-For very rich chocolates or truffles, don’t taste more than two in one sitting.

-Cleanse your palate with water before and in between each new variety that you taste (not in between bites).

So tama pala ginagawa ko every time kahit ngayon ko lang nabasa ang way of eating chocolate. I never chew a chocolate in my entire life. Laging nilulusaw lang sa bibig :D

yep...especially taking a small piece of dark chocolate, you have to melt it slowly in your mouth...giving time ma absorbs also ng brain natin yun PEA/phenylethylamine that we get sa chocolate thus enhances the release of chemicals in our brain like dopamine, norepinephrine na pwede maka induce ng happy mode ika nga :)

I don't quite know if it's because of the lovely evening I had but this sure sounds a lot like foreplay.  laffman::
