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.
