La Chocolatière du Panier

I have to share these with you guys... it's an amazing chocolate that I got in Marseille last week. This little chocolatier is hidden in the crooked roads of Le Panier, a neighborhood of Marseille's centreville. For 45 euro/kg there are a zillion varieties of homemade chocolate made in big discs (think pizza) and cut into wedges for sale. The one I got was made with 70 percent dark chocolate with candied oranges. A tiny bite will give you an indelible mouthful of smooth bitter cocoa with a hint of sweetness from the bits of candied fruit. There are some made with caramalized ginger, figs, pistachio, and other interesting combinations. The lady who owns the place (thus, la chocolatiere)will be happy to let you do a few tastings. It's up the road from the Centre de la Vieille Charité (cultural center), a baroque chapel that was once used as a monastery as well. (More about this place later.)

When you return for hols, I'll take you down myself to Imbi for a good dose of 'wa dan hor with tender succulent beef pieces (i.e. kuay teow noddles drenched in thick gravy flavoured with a tad of beef stock, spring onion and ginger)
