Inspired by Chocolate

November 5, 2012

Photography by Chia Chong      Styling by Libbie Summers

Food is our trigger to all design. Its color may inform our fashion, its texture may inform our artwork. Its shape may inform our interiors and its flavor will always inform our table. In honor of Valentine’s Day, for the next two weeks our inspiration is chocolate. From bean to bar we celebrate the flavor of love. We travel to Atlanta, Georgia these weeks where Andrea Goto profiles the beautiful and politically passionate chocolate maker Kristen Hard of Cacao Atlanta. Libbie Summers shares a sweet memory of one of her favorite stylists, Ginny Branch Sterling. And, Ginny welcomes us into her new home as she sets a romantic breakfast table. Amy Zurcher, our art goddess, chooses a delicious art piece for you to chew on and the ever fabulous Brooke Atwood gives a sizzling fashion suggestion for that special night. We’ll offer up two recipes. One decadent new cookie recipe (HOT Hot Chocolate Cookies) and one of our favorites from the queen of kitchen love, Julia Child. The sexy voiced Brenda Anderson produces a new podcast that gives simple and affordable suggestions for what to do with your loved one on any special day –no need to wait for Valentine’s Day. Finally, the thoughtful beauty in photographer Chia Chong’s work will be the glue that ties each piece together. Check back with us each day as we indulge in our love of all things chocolate.
