After the new year starts I'm getting together with friends to celebrate some birthdays. Both the celebrants are in to chocolate and they like the dark kinds. We're planning to do a blind chocolate tasting. Alas, I didn't think to bring home some chocolate from the November jaunt to Paris and even though I have time to go back, I seemed to be quite out of money. So the questions are:
1. What chocolates, really good chocolates like the kind you get at Maison du chocolate or Debauves, would you include in a tasting?
2. Where in LA would you go to buy these types of chocolates?
I already thought of going to Surfas but I can only think of one or two types there.
