“Exotic Valentine’s Day getaway sans a flight to Mumbai” – Washington Post Express

A lovely write-up by American Food Roots

I am partnering with artisan chocolate maker Co Co Sala to bring forth my own line of luxury spiced chocolates for Valentine’s Day. These are high-end chocolates spiced with aphrodisiac spices like saffron, cardamom, cinnamon and ginger. We even spiced one with Gulkand (spiced Indian rose preserves) — what is Valentine’s Day without roses!

Our combinations:

SpiceSutra Bar Collection

“KESAR”: milk chocolate / saffron / cinnamon-toasted almonds

“ADRAK”: dark chocolate / candied ginger / fennel seeds

“ELAICHI”: white chocolate / green cardamom

“GULAAB”: milk chocolate / gulkand rose preserves / toasted cashews

The chocolates will be on sale for three days here on my site and via Co Co Sala directly. They will cost $30 a box (plus shipping and handling). I can promise you that the taste is truly amazing with the spices balancing out the sweetness of the chocolate.

Sale dates: Feb 4, 5,6. This allows enough time for the chocolates to be shipped to reach in time for Valentine’s Day to anywhere in the US.
