Michael Recchuiti's SMORES
I hereby declare I have decided from this moment forth to only eat artisanal food handmade within a 3 block radius of my house. This doesn't worry me one jot. I can have Fatted Calf cold cuts for starters and Michael Recchuiti's Smores for dessert. Every Day. Sorted.
Perfect for those moments when the camp site has put a ban on open fires, these Smores come ready-assembled. And if your pinny is too pretty to be splattered in melted chocolate these ready-made smores will come in handy in the home kitchen too. A gooey blob of marshmallow is perched on a super-crispy tile of graham cracker before both are enrobed in rich bittersweet chocolate. I love the contrasts it delivers. Texture-wise the crunch of the biscuit is softened by the puffy marshmallow and the velvety chocolate. Colour-wise the dark, dark chocolate highlights the white, white within. Taste-wise the overall sweetness is balanced with the tinge of bitter. It's too big to pop into your mouth in one bite, but don't complain about that, it just means the pleasure lasts longer.
PS - Remember. Food isn't magic. When you are really sad nothing you eat will cheer you up, not even the sweetest of Smores. Save the Smore's for regular or happy occasions. They will taste better that way.
