I will always remember of this wonderful meeting I had as a child…
Our holidays at the castle will always remain a fond memory.
Evenings passed by with the reading tales of lands far away and seeing my brothers and sisters play.
My favorite place was in the kitchen. A young lady with a delicate touch and wonderful freshness was preparing a warm drink; gently stirring the melted chocolate close to the fire. She would dip little cubes prepared from mysterious ingredients come from lands far away, brought to us by pilgrims guided by their lanterns. Brilliant fruits, small nuts still hanging from their stems, glowing honeys of bewitching aromas.
These scents and sites captivated me as I watched in silence, all whilst learning her secrets.
Thanks to her I learned this wonderful passion of chocolate making.
I never knew her name, but for me she shall always be…
… la chocolatière
