Crazy For Chocolate - Do Not Air ‘D'
The Spanish have been passionate about chocolate since the Conquistadors first brought cacao back from South America over 500 years ago. The Spanish like to start and end their day with chocolate, and so will Annie in this sweet and sexy episode. Annie wakes up with chocolate in a cup in Madrid before moving on to Spain?s chocolate capital, Barcelona, where chocolate is an art form. There, she visits the showroom of the Willy Wonka of Barcelona - avant-garde chocolatero Cristian Escriba - who transforms chocolate into surreal art. Annie also meets the well-loved Mama Montse Roca at her traditional tavern in Girona to help cook up a savory Catalonian dish of snails and crab with chocolate, then on to the high-end restaurant run by Mama Roca?s three sons for more chocolate inspired dishes and a fantasy chocolate dessert.
