For the first time in about 15 years, I’m somewhat prepared for the holidays. Christmas shopping: done. Edible treats: done. Cards: sent. I’m not saying this to gloat, because no one likes that, but to celebrate the fact that I might just be on my way to being a grown up. Whatever that means.
If you’re less prepared and are still scrambling for a gift, I’d like to take this moment for some shameless self-promotion and suggest that a chocolate-tasting class would make a lovely gift for the chocolate lover in your life.
And don’t just take my word for it. My chocolate tastings are listed in not one, but two seasonal gift lists! (Cue happy dancing.)
Says Edible Vancouver in their Winter 2011 issue: “For the curious chocolate aficionado…Eagranie Yuh’s chocolate-tasting classes will appeal to beginners and connoisseurs alike.” And The Globe and Mail’s Alexandra Gill included my chocolate tastings in her list of “lip-smacking treats for seasonal giving.”
So here’s to chocolate, and to you for your support. It’s been a great year, and I couldn’t have done it without you. Here’s wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday. See you in 2012.
If you love pudding as much as I do, you’ll want to check out the Winter issue of Edible Vancouver. I’m proud to say that my article “Personal Puddings: A Confession, with Recipes” appears on page 36. And, even better, those fabulous personal puddings found their way onto the cover of the issue. (Many thanks to the very talented and oh-so-wonderful Leeanne Munn for making my puddings look as good as they taste.)
Until I get my hands on the pdf of the article, you can read the digital version of Edible Vancouver, which is full of tasty articles about spiced winter drinks, hazelnuts and much more.
Also, I’m working on something cool with Kafka’s Coffee and Tea. We’re still working out some of the details, but it promises to be fun, exciting and chocolatey. If you’d like to get the details before anyone else, fill in the contact form below.
The new issue of Edible Vancouver is out, and if you turn to page 12 you’ll find my article about hot chocolate. Or, read the article here. If you want the recipe, you’ll have to get an actual copy – at least, until the recipe gets indexed and posted on the site.
Copies tend to fly off the shelves pretty quickly. Get yours at one of these fine establishments. Or hey, you know what would make a great Christmas gift? You guessed it: a subscription to Edible Vancouver.
