.: I’ve got chocolate

I am late. In fact this was done on November the 2nd. Apart from Halloween… è la commemorazione dei defunti. We remember people we have loved and lost. And this is my dark and sweet homage to a sweet sweet friend I lost very long ago, but never forget. She taught me to cook this great chocolate cake and she taught me I’ve got life.

and I gave my recipe to you just the same she gave it to me:

For the crust:

250 gr flour – farina
150 gr sugar – zucchero
2 eggs – 2 uova
100 gr butter
1 small spoon of baking powder

For the filling:

1 egg – 1 uovo
150 gr black chocolate (to melt) – cioccolato fondente
200 ml sweet cream – panna
3 spoons of sugar

cook: 180°C ++ for about 40 minutes (check the crust)

I know… it needs some work… melt the chocolate, melt the butter…

but hey: good things need some work.

Do the crust first and put it in the pan (butter and flour on the bottom)… no need to say it doesn’t have to be perfect…

then mix the ingredients for the filling

and place the cream inside

you’re done…almost. Be careful when cooking: it’s gonna grow pretty much… and then… get down later

do you think it’s not looking good ? you’re wrong

that’s the way it has to look… and you’ll love it

wanna make it even better ? reduce quantities for the crust… you’ll love more chocolate…

‘cause black is the best part. Ask Ms. Lauryn Hill

.: I’m the (thundering) ocean

Sometimes food is not just food. Sometimes music is not just music. Sometimes feelings are not just feelings.

Sometimes you do feel you’re just a vibe in the universe and it feels great.

The Aztecs believed that cacao seeds were the gift of Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom, and the seeds once had so much value that they were used as a form of currency. Also they believed that Quetzalcoatl had been condemned by the other gods for sharing chocolate with humans.

The Maya people left some surviving writings about cacao which confirm the identification of the drink with the gods. The Dresden Codex specifies that it is the food of the rain deity Kon, the Madrid Codex that gods shed their blood on the cacao pods as part of its production.

Isn’t it sadly ironic that Europeans almost exterminated people who gave chocolate to the world ?

.: Black coffee

Well, actually I don’t like black coffee as much as I love dark chocolate, but I still like to play with coffee in the milk foam 😀

and I love Beth & Joe songs really much !

be’ non so cosa preferisco tra Beth e un tortino al cioccolato….

non credo riuscirete a capirlo guardando questo blog, perché è pieno di canzoni di Beth e di tortini al cioccolato 😀
