A chill wind breathes through the maple woods, gilding the forest floor with a leafy blanket of red, amber, and gold. The earth grows still, and maple trees store their sugary sap for the long sleep ahead. Clusters of hazelnuts hang from fog shrouded branches, hiding tiny auburn treasures that slowly ripen in the depths of Autumn’s embrace.
Two foods consumed in Canada since ancient times, maple sugar and hazelnuts are smoothly stone ground and conched in a bed of velvety cacao. May they take you on a sweet and nutty dark chocolate dream.
