I've generally found that the best accompaniment to a good bottle of red wine is another bottle of red wine. :)

Dark chocokate is very nice but I have to tell you that the folk on here endorsing using it in cooking are deviants!

 

What the hell is wrong with you people? Chocolate in a savoury dish is just weird behaviour!

 

Cease and desist! Its you lot that put fruit on pizza’s n shit. Weirdos!!!

Good man.

 

Got some 90% Lindt the other day. Goes well with my mid-morning espresso.

Also goes very well in a high protein keto style diet

I watched a documentary of this posh bloke who sunk all his money into buying Venezuelan cocoa beans and some equipment and making 100% chocolate a few years back. It was like a fly on the wall documentary and pretty enjoyable.

William Harcourt-Cooze his name was, got called Willy Wonka. Anyway, he eventually managed to get a deal with Waitrose and I just had to try it. 

It was rancid 🤮 went well in pasta sauces though.

Boy knows his chocolate though.

Excuse my ignorance - what's a keto style diet? I've heard of it, but tend to ignore pretty much anything niche.

Its essentially a diet which is aimed at higher fats in order to allow you to utilise these as fuel for your body , can also help with hunger pangs. High fat , low carb puts your body into a state of ketosis (high ketone levels in the blood) worth a read , dont just jump into one if you try it though , ensure its not detrimental to your health and is effective for your age group and activity levels

Cheers. Sounds too complicated for me to bother with, but good to know the ideas behind these plans. Tend to eat what my body tells me to, if you know what I mean. Currently off both booze and meat (for Lent), which ain't easy and can't say I'm actually feeling any difference. If anything, been feeling worse the last few days!

 

Massively upped my water intake this year though, which has definitely made an improvement.

So I've heard but either of those would give me heartburn; taken together would be deadly to me.

 

My wife eats dark chocolate as it's very high in iron.

I had a Green & Black advent calendar at Christmas and you have just reminded me I have a box of Green & Black minis in the Christmas sweet stash too.

90% or GTF.

This man is unafraid to speak the truth. 

 

Was given some Bourneville at Christmas and couldn't believe how sweet it was.
