Isn't this the kind of
writing on the wall
we all love?
Chocolate Quince Tartelette
with your coffee?
I said yes to sinful gluttony -
and, oh, what rapture!
Morsel after morsel
on the wings of a perfectly composed
rhapsody of flavours to the higher spheres
of sweet nirvana

"... a triumphant sunburst
of sensual and spiritual delight -
a supreme banquet
harmonizing body and soul ... "

Ahh, one of my all-time favourite movies! That chocolate tartelette looks like heaven on earth to me. And yesterday's photos simply stunning.ReplyDelete
What a great movie and I don't blame you for indulging. That looks fantastic.ReplyDelete
I am enjoying India...except for my bout of Delhi Belly...and I love the food but, once in awhile, one longs for an espresso and a chocolate morsel such as this.
I'm always up for being loved with good food!ReplyDelete
