Fabulous Fridays – Chocolat

I’ve seen the movie. Twice. And I’ve read the book.  I usually prefer the book to the movie but, in this case, I really have no preference. The movie brought to life all those delectable chocolate goodies that the booked described so well. So how could I complain? Of course, casting Johnny Depp as Roux was the frosting on an already delicious cake – chocolate, of course.

I love chocolate. I love it to the extent that I would happily skip a meal to indulge in a chocolate bar or  a cup cake. Dark, velvety and rich is how I like it – the higher the cocoa-to-milk content the better. I have eaten chocolate that consists of 95% cocoa. Sinfully delicious – yes I can totally agree with that. While the Olympian gods feasted on nectar and ambrosia, the gods of the Mayans had their fill of the cocoa bean. I have no doubt as to what I would be eating all day long if I was a deity with no concern for my waistline.
I will leave you with some pictures of delectable chocolate creations which I wish I could reach into my monitor and eat.

Are you hungry yet?
And, of course, I could not help but include some memorable scenes from the movie.

  3. Chocolat has got to be one of my favourite movies especially with Johnny Depp...and I too enjoyed the book, although as you already know there is definitely a different twist in it or rather in the movie since the book came first!
    Am I hungry yet? You naughty girl...getting us all worked up for chocolate and especially at this time of year when there are so many displayed everywhere you go! I think I've said enough! Nice post, gotta watch that movie again, must be about a dozen times by now!

  4. I love chocolate the real black one from time to time. Suddenly it comes over me and I could eat a whole tablet. But then I can stay months without.
    I haven't seen the film or read the book. I don't like Johnny Depp, can't say why, lol !
