The way to eat your chocolate is to let it melt , gently and slowly , revealing most of its flavors, if not , a step at a time.

At first , the taste of the wasabi literally kicks in all my sensors , and makes its entry like a penalty ….. but the warmth of this roots is tricky , in fact it does not warn that your teeth will soon be “jailbreaked” from the inside out and that a wave of heat (not uncomfortable I must stress) will come bursting , making sure it is being felt.

Then , because the matter is not yet over , it is turn to my mind to be played with , as the so natural taste noted here confuses it , I suddenly realize my eyes are lurking for sushi’s …. Sushi ?

I thought I was treating myself with 70% of pure delight !?
There are no soft rolling grains of silky rice to be seen here, nor any dark and intriguing sheets of nori.

One may pinch the skin of his harm to very soon realize that Lindt , has launched a brand new line of bars sold over the counter (the sale of these naughty 10 packs slates should be controlled if you ask me) , making my life a dream come true.

In contrary to a few animals , the human body has the advantage of being able to break down and evacuate any form of toxin found in the cocoa bean (Theobromine , from the name of the plant Theobroma also known as “Food for the Gods”) allowing us (next to our favorite pet dog/cat) to consume with excess these dark and old recipe and concoctions , serving in numerous religious traditions , in various forms and shape (chocolate St Nicolas / Easter Eggs / Rabbit …and so on ) & sometimes covering ourselves with it , as consideration of ultimate sensual bliss.

Many thank you to not only the evolution of our race but also to our thinking tanks at Kew Royal botanic garden (amongst many), who have set up a plant and seed bank where everyone is welcome in saving any plant or flower by simply adopting , whether a single item or a whole species

To mention another newly discovered fact , we have all read about the bees and discovered at some point in our lifetime, their importance in the pollination and of the disastrous consequences if they were to disappear.

Not only the roofs of Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason do nowadays hold beehive and produce the nectar made by these laborious , sometimes soldier , but always gardener of our back yards and orchards.

Nicolas Geant in Paris France , has come up with the not so silly idea , of installing at the request of enterprises and particular (Louis Vuiton , La Tour d’Argent , EDF la Defense and Guerlain) , beehives as per floating clouds above their rooftops , providing a clear and delicate honey having the advantage of being produced in larger quantity than in the countryside , Paris having a “decret” of no pesticides allowed , thus providing the ideal environment , plus , having an “atout” of being surrounded with large variety of plants and flowers being cultivated and taken well care of , from the numerous garden of the Capital.

Capital “Bee”
