OK! We admit it. We are chocolate lovers inside and out.
We may have stumbled upon the ultimate (for now at least) double dark chocolate, hand made (by us) ice cream sandwich. Recently in San Francisco, we visited the Cowgirl Creamery store in the iconic Ferry Building close to the Bay Bridge.
Cowgirl is one of the finest artisanal cheese makers in California. There, while picking up some cheese as a treat for our friends, we were introduced to the best chocolate cookie we have ever tasted. The cheesemonger suggested that this cookie would be good with a touch of fresh triple cream cheese topped with cherry jam. Yum!
The Bay Area’s Rustic Bakery makes this delectable, sophisticated cacao nib shortbread that combines both Valrhona chocolate and cacao nibs with a tiny bit of salt on the finish. They stand on their own as a delicious dessert. But, when incorporated into a mini sandwich with Rori’s Artisanal Creamery’s “serious dark chocolate” ice cream we were speechless!
At Rori’s, “We create organic ice creams that not only take you to a new planet, customers even credit it for making them want to be better humans! We use only Straus Family Creamery organic milk, cream and eggs. All those cows eat is grass, baby!”
Rori’s just happens to be within a couple of blocks from our office in Carpinteria, (Santa Barbara-Central California). The Straus Family Creamery is located in Northern California and sources the milk and cream for Cowgirl Creamery, as well.
Perhaps you are connecting the local culinary dots. There is a fabulous trend here in California to go organic and champion the artisans who have paved the way to a brave new world of natural goodness that is simply unsurpassed.
