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.
