I remember walking past plants at the farmers market 3 years ago, when for the first time I experienced the magical fragrance of Lemon Verbena. It transported my senses to an entirely different world! It made me relaxed and refreshed. I bought the plant and rushed home to use it in my new chocolate creation - Tango for Two.
I named my new chocolate "Tango for Two", a sensual duet of luscious sweet strawberries and aromatic and refreshing verbena, encased in luxurious dark chocolate.
Do you know the meaning of word "tango"? In Latin it means "I touch". In everything I create I try to touch something- the joy, the humour, the passion, hope, peace, love, desire, loneliness, sadness, the heart, the everything life has...
I would like to say that it was a duet that never ended. But there was a problem! My verbena would give just few leaves a year, that’s it! Which means I would enjoy these chocolates just once a year. This year we re-potted it and it finally grew well!
