A Bowl of Whipped Cream (and Hot Chocolate)

A bowl of fresh whipped cream ensures a good afternoon. A little tête-à-tête with Phyllis at La Maison du Chocolat…wish we had more places like this in the city.

And by that I mean, more nice and quiet salons where you can sit with cup of hot chocolate (or Mariage Frères tea) and chat for hours. Here’s a peek at the tea menu.

They have two types of hot chocolate at La Maison du Chocolat. One is dark and more rich, and the other is sweet and more creamy. Phyllis prefers the latter (to which she always adds more steamed milk) and I prefer the former, which is called Caracas.

Both come with bowl of whipped cream, dusted in cocoa powder and topped with tiny chocolate pearls. They actually sell the chocolate pearls/Tasse de Chocolat by the tube. It’s what we use to La Maison du Chocolat
