heart, shaped

If I’m treating myself, I’m going for the classic chocolate caramel bonbons from French Broad Chocolate Lounge, packaged in a little blue box, North Carolina’s version of Tiffany blue; or maybe I’m going for the triple chocolate truffle from Chocolate Fetish in Asheville, with its three layers of opulence. If I’m in Raleigh, it’s definitely the gold-tinged honey caramel bonbons from the chocolate counter at Videri Chocolate Factory or the dark chocolate sea salt bar from Escazu. My first experience with that last one came in Beaufort more than a decade ago, when one of North Carolina’s first chocolate pioneers, Hallot Parson, had just started producing small-batch candy from his little apartment above Cru Wine Bar. But on one day each year, February 14 — Valentine’s Day — I look forward…

a fond farewell

DREW PERRY’S TALES of adventure with The Toad and The Wee will be greatly missed (“All Good Things …” December, page 30). It was one of my favorite features. Their family will surely continue to explore and enjoy life, but without us tagging along. Next thing you know, those boys will be teens, then adults with a wonderful record of their growing-up years. Thanks for sharing, Drew and Tita. Roz Ryan HENDERSONVILLE IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN enjoying Drew’s column about adventures with his kids for five years. It was such a pleasure to search out the beautiful stories he penned each month. We have all laughed and cried at his travels with The Toad and The Wee. What a wonderful legacy he leaves for his children. Best of luck in…
