ATTENTION, CHOCOLATE LOVERS!
Since I'm doing solids for friends of ours, I realize I have been remiss and have not added Phantasia Chocolates to my list to the left. I am correcting that oversight now.
If you're the type of person whose body chemistry alters and whose mind melts and whose tastebuds twitter at the merest whiff... the slightest suggestion... of chocolate, you need to check out Phantasia Chocolates. These are the handmade creations of our friend Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan, who not only performs yeoman duty by hammering together each monthly issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, the Traders' Magazine (managing editor, Elizabeth M.S. Flynn, by the way), but then retreats to her rented kitchen and crafts stunningly superb and exotic chocolate truffles. They're available right now only at four retail locations, but the chocolate lover in you will want to find them if you live in the Seattle metro area, or merely intend to be here one day.
Look for them at:
Matthews Thriftway, 4989 Lakemont Boulevard SE, Bellevue, WA 98012
Caffe Coccinella, 10226 NE 10th Street, Bellevue, WA 98004
Great Harvest Bread Co. (West Seattle), 4709 California Avenue SW, Seattle, WA 98116
Seattle Wine Co., 1960 130th Avenue, Suite 1, Bellevue, WA 98005
