Chilies & Chocolate
After the very informative brunch I told you about yesterday, I stayed on at the Desert Botanical Garden a little longer to check out the annual Chilies and Chocolate event. These freshly roasted green chillies were beckoning me over with their delicious aroma wafting through the air.
There were also plenty of dried chilies available and some of them in the form a long chili ristras like this one.
My only criticism of the event this year was that there was not enough chocolate available. In years past, there have been several different vendors selling all kinds of chocolate treats. This year I saw only one but, it was a pretty spectacular one. I came home with the above box.
Those are some pretty gorgeous chocolates, wouldn't you say? I haven't tasted one yet but if they taste as amazing as they look, I'll be looking for more very soon. They do ship their chocolates so I'm providing a link just in case this photo has tempted you.
