There is a certain tendency not to take chocolate seriously. This is
not to say that some people are not serious about chocolates. An awful
lot of them are, but they are serious about chocolate as chocolate, not
chocolate as food. Rose's has something for both types. They have the
usual collection of very good chocolate candies and truffles, all made
on the premises, and they offer something for us more general foodies.

05: We finally roasted up our chocolate pods. It was pretty easy. We
put them on a pizza tray and popped them in a 350 degree Fahrenheit
oven for about 15 minutes. The air was soon rich with the scent of
chocolate. We let the pods cool for a few minutes and peeled the thin
skin from one of the pods. The insides tasted of bitter chocolate with
a rich nutty overtone, almost a hazelnut flavor.
The secret of chocolate has been revealed!
