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.


  1. I've put on some lbs. by just looking at these wonderful chocolate creations.

  2. oh, it's friday already in your neck of the woods!

    chocolat is such a great movie!! but i have to ask: do you have to post these images just as i've finished lunch? those truffles, that slice of cake! yikes..all my favorites... sigh ;-)

  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 !

  5. I agree, loved the movie and I keep cocoa dusted truffles in my freezer year round!!!

  6. There are moments when *only* chocolate will do.

  7. Oh I like this movie also, and your pictures are drooling teases! Just delicious...

  8. Now you've made me want to watch that movie again! :)
