International Chocolate Panel at the 92nd Street Y

In this run-up to the Chocolate Show (held every November in New York City), the 92nd Street Y will host a panel of international chocolate experts. Together, they will give you a mouth-watering, guided tour of the finest chocolates from Austria, Belgium, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Venezuela. Distinguished panelists include Francois Payard, chef-owner of the esteemed Payard Patisserie & Bistro and Clay Gordon, who probably has the best title of them all: Chocolate Critic. Author and culinary historian, Alexandra Leaf, will moderate. And will there be a tasting? Of course, immediately following the panel; only the best chocolates and dessert wines from around the world will be available for your tasting delight. See full details below:

Omigod! I just spent 3 hours *nonstop* reading ALL your posts!!! My eyeballs are ready to pop out of their sockets and roll under my computer table. But it’s all been worth it. This blog is a wish come true — that someone would put up a blog entirely devoted to dessert. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! You’ve got one diehard fan here — all the way from the Philippines. The only thing I wish is that I lived closer to New York so that I could partake of the cakes and sweets too. :)

Oh my, please take care of all eyes and their corresponding sockets! Thank you so much Lori, how did you hear of Lovescool in the Philippines?

Ironically, two days ago was my first experience with Filipino food. But there were no desserts on the menu. Can you inform Kelli and me on what sorts of desserts that they have in the Philippines? I’d love to find out more, and even write something up about it.

There’s some special secret Sale link on Amazon, EBay, etc. where you can find very good discounts:


I’ve seen discounts there as low as 75% off sticker Price.
