I had a great time! Excellent idea, Bertrand! It was so nice talking to you. Sky, you're my orange chocolate fairy! If you don't see me for a while it's because I've died and gone to heaven, c'est tellement bon!

Beautiful weather, good people and chocolate, a perfect mix.

Seems like I missed the wonderful event but I think watching the World cup final was more worthwhile ....particularly when your team wins

Sky found me some orange-flavoured milk chocolate, which is my absolute favourite and not easy to find AND I noticed that the shop that makes it isn't too far from where I work!!

Perhaps, but it's never seemed worth making a huge effort (I've no car or credit card) and paying triple the price.

I've waited patiently, and finally found a local high quality supply, much like several years after I arrived, the Swiss chip market expanded to include salt and vinegar flavour!

Re: Chocolate Festival [Versoix - Geneva: not cancelled any more!]

I might have added that all I need now is really good poutine like I used to buy from the blue truck in front of Toronto City Hall, and then I would tear up my passport. But that would be off-topic

Sorry Bertrand, it is totally OT:

Ok I can't send you the poutine, but I can send you a poutine mix package from St-Hubert Restaurant. For the cheese, I think you can find something that can make it for the squeek squeek one we have back home! Here I use the Helim Peynir you find in a Turkish Grocery store.

If you want the sauce, send me your address via PM.

Somebody here did tell me you can find them at the Britshop.
