    I love chocolate. Barry have a great selection of quality single origin (the one from Venezuela is particularly delicious) and specific blends. They are a very big name in the industry, with a lot of choice.

    I only use Valhrona chocolate. It's the best.

    I have tried Valhrona, found it to be very good. But what makes it the best?
    Not contradicting you, but just curious to hear your thoughts

    The 66% that I use most often has subtle notes of fruits or berries that I just can't seem to find in other brands. Just a personal preference I suppose.

    Any ideas on how to use the Dulcey blond?

    I don't have that one but their caramelia is nice for making ice creams with. Maybe the same could be said of the blonde?

    I'm very fond of Lindt's darker chocolates. Different ones for different purposes though. Their 75% is very nice for snacking and strawberries. I've never cooked with it though. The 85% is also very good for snacking, I think it might be a bit too bitter for baked goods though.
