Weekend E.A.T. – For the Love of Chocolate

 Camera Uploads 22

In Bangalore, there is a dessert shop with a signature dish – DBC. Death by Chocolate. My cousins introduced it to me me when I was younger and life has never been the same.

I don’t actually know if it’s possible to die from chocolate, but I think I came pretty close this weekend. Nomming through the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival and a chocolate chip cookie pop-up (yes, this is real) this past weekend is a feat that can only be accomplished with a ridiculously high tolerance for sugar.

Luckily, I’m your gal for that.

It was fun, if nearly coma-inducing, to experience so much chocolate through the means of a large, touristy event and a small, locals-only one. It goes to show that ultimately, we’re all here to eat and we can unite and rejoice in this simple affair.

I’m just tryna get fed.

Chocolate vodka and chocolate wine at the festival – interesting, but I think I prefer regular alcohol 😛

Late lunch at the famous Tony’s Pizza Napoletana in North Beach to overcome the sweetness of all the chocolate we ate. The wait at the restaurant can be long, so it’s easier to order slices to-go and enjoy them at Washington Square Park nearby.

Chronicle Books released a chocolate chip cookie cookbook and celebrated by popping up at local favorite Dandelion Chocolate. Of course, I had to get 8 cookies.
