"Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces." ~ Judith Viorst

Truth be told, I am one of those rare women who is not wild about chocolate.  Now - this is not to say that I don't ever eat or enjoy chocolate - I just don't crave it, need it or wax poetic about it.  Now lobster on the other hand - I could wax, buff and shine poetic about lobster. 

I may not be a serious fancier of chocolate, but I truly do enjoy learning about the process or the craft of creating something.  I know that this is why I so thoroughly enjoy Craft in America, the PBS series that I devoted a post to a short while back.  I know that I'm not going to craft a violin, or create ceramic art that is going to be displayed in museums - but I love to see how it is done, and to learn about the people who do it.

And so I come to this video, which I stumbled upon on another person's blog.  The video is of the Mast Brothers, located in Brooklyn, NY.  They truly "craft" their fine chocolates in a very personal way.  It's 
so interesting to watch, and could easily be the subject of a Craft in America episode.  If you are reading this via e-mail - please click here to view.



  1. What a great reminder to be passionate about what I create. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That video was fun to watch! What a great field trip to go to their shop and experience it all in person. Thanks for sharing only the BEST.
