On Being Godiva’d (at George’s, hehe) 歌帝梵巧克力聚会

The latest of my ChocoJing adventures has led my taste buds to extreme levels of happiness. Not only because Godiva is one of my favorite brands of chocolate (plus they have a sexy logo!) but also because George’s is a great bar and George (the bartender) makes the most *delicious* white chocolate martinis! Yum! A [...]

上个星期巧克京举办了一个特殊的活动:ChocoJinging our very own Chocolate Truffles。这次活动是我们第一次不仅动口吃巧克力,也动手做巧克力! 平时活动品尝别人手做出来的巧克力满好吃,对吧?但是亲自动手自己做出来的,那味道从嘴里到心里别提有多甜美了!当然最好玩的还是一边做一边从自己手上舔起来吃巧克力,哈哈哈…..羡慕吗? 这次有很多是我们巧克京的老会员,一直坚持不懈的参加我们的活动,当然也还有一部分新会员参加,希望下次活动的时候他们也可以成为老会员了呵呵呵…… 大家一边吃巧克力,一边愉快的聊天认识来自各国各行的新朋友朋友。这样过一个寒冷的夜晚也不错 其实做松露并不是很难。如果你要出去买一合那可是超级贵了。当然再贵也不如自己亲自动手做的好吃,美在脸上甜在心里~~ 如果你有机会,一定要去The Fig Tree试试学习怎么做西餐甜点。中国菜漂亮美味超级好吃,但是甜点还不如西方的那么那么好吃。 看来中国的大厨师们需要努力学习,需要一个厨神创造一种新的中式甜点的类型?呵呵呵…..。 左边的美女是第一次参加巧克京活动的新会员,我觉得她看起来很满意,你们觉得吗?:) 她也是在《十分戏剧节》参加演出的演员之一。 如果你们看过《十分戏剧节》节目的话一定会记得,就是《绿色女孩》的老看书的角色。我很开心可以把玩皮猴子戏剧社与巧克京融合起来。一举两得(今天学的新成语,哈哈)! ~ 柳素英 ( Elyse )


Truffled up in Love (and Chocolate, of course!)

As I’d had to trek halfway across the city from the Huatuo offices way out in Haidian (deceptively [...]
