One of the joys of living in this city is the abundance of great food and drink around us. And if you happen to have a sweet tooth and are also a chocoholic and you living in Seattle you know you really are in luck.
One of my favorite caramel confections in the world, luckily, also happens to be made in our fair city by one of the nation's top chocolatiers, Fran Bigelow.
The company's website describes them as follows: "Soft, fresh caramels hand-dipped in 56% pure dark chocolate and sprinkled with flavorful gray sea salt harvested off the Brittany coast".
They also happen to be the winner of the 2003 NASFT Outstanding Confection. Need I say more?
And just so you have an idea of how passionate I am about these babies and to continue with Debbie's Caramel theme for the week (yeah, that's the ticket!) we are going out to dinner with out of town friends at a lovely restaurant with one of the best views in the city.
We purchased enough of these for our party and will take them out of their lovely wrapper in time to enjoy them with our coffee or dessert wine. What better sweet ending that these Seattle caramels to what promises to be a fabulous time with good friends and great food?
