Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

A Day at the Coffee House with Tom

Continuing the saga of our Vermont and New Hampshire trip, a friend of mine who I went to culinary school with for chocolate owns Dirt Cowboy Cafe. It's a lovely place in Hanover, NH. And the pastry. Tom makes the best vol-au-vent, croissants, you name it. Well worth the eating. He roasts his own coffee and make great confections and chocolates. What more could you ask for?

The Cafe is the first stop when you come out of Dartmouth. It has a great atmosphere, great coffee, great pastry, savory and sweet and a fantastic staff, Tom included.

One of the things I love about visiting Tom is the approach to the town. This bridge is beautiful and majestic.

See? Beautiful.

I highly recommend stopping off at the cafe, buying some chocolates and getting some coffee and a vol-au-vent with raspberry filling. They are light and they are a good size. Where did all my pictures of Kim go? She's the person Tom is looking at.

This is a nice shop a little down aways from his.

Well, Tom, it was great visiting. Come by the Arms when you get the chance.
