Chocolate: Uncovered!

Chocolate Bacon Cheeseburger
Fr Ian M Delinger

The debut of "Playing With Food" for "Issues & Ideas" explores the world of chocolate and uncovers its surprising diversity that can be played with in your own kitchen...if you are adventurous enough.

Fr Ian Delinger cracks the pod on where chocolate comes from and how chocolate is produced. But he goes further than that. He explores how the flavors in chocolate - from the cacao bean origin! -  can be paired with wine (not so unusual) and beer (well, that's new!!)! Finally, Fr Ian takes his exploration of chocolate to the kitchen, uncovering new ways to use chocolate as a flavor to enhance some of your favorite foods. You will be surprised what his playing with food results in.
