227 Aragon Ave. in Coral Gables has come up with a novel way to team
the two: A chocolate-dipped champagne bottle. Now through February 14,
customers can bring in their favorite bubbly -- or wine (and maybe beer
too, in case you've got a wild one on your hands) -- and have it
covered in food-grade wrap, dipped in gourmet dark, milk or white
chocolate blends, and decorated (as in the photo). The cost is $18 per
Peterbrooke is likewise offering interactive classes
for "chocolatiers that want to dip and decorate themselves!" Kinky
fun, baby! Oh no, sorry -- what they mean is that classes are for
those who want to dip and decorate the bottles themselves. Classes for
doing so will be held Wednesday, February 11 through Friday, February
13 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., and on Saturday, February 14 at 2 p.m. The
cost is $25 per person, and students must bring their own bottle of
wine or champagne. Classes are limited to six students each, and
reservations are required. Call 305-446-3131.
