Valentine's Day is just around the corner

and, of course, it ALWAYS means chocolate. There's a local "chocolate chef" here in Santa Barbara, Jessica Foster.
"Raised on California’s central coast, Jessica has always appreciated the honesty of artisanal foods, the purity of organic ingredients and the simple process of creating a product by hand from start to finish. She began experimenting with chocolate in 2001, making a few truffles laced with local delicacies as gifts. Today she continues to wander the Farmers’ Market in search of fresh herbs and ripe fruit to create sumptuous flavors like dark chocolate orange, tangy meyer lemon and white chocolate lavender that reflect the vibrancy of Santa Barbara’s coastal bounty."
She hasn't set up an "official store front" as of yet (perhaps it's the outrageous prices being asked for rents here in town) but you can find her creations at local spots such as Savoy Truffles and Lazy Acres. Oh, and her own site of course, jessicafostercreations.com Just imagine your beloved enjoying these delicious flavors:
  • dark chocolate earl grey
    dark chocolate truffle infused with earl grey tea, rolled in vanilla scented sugar
  • dark chocolate orange-ginger
    dark chocolate truffle with candied ginger and orange zest, rolled in cocoa
  • white chocolate green tea

  • white chocolate meyer lemon
    white chocolate truffle flavored with meyer lemon zest, rolled in meyer lemon infused sugar
  • dark chocolate rosemary
    dark chocolate truffle infused with fresh rosemary, rolled in cocoa
  • milk chocolate star anise-thyme

  • white chocolate passion fruit
    white chocolate truffle with passion fruit juice, rolled in vanilla scented sugar

looks yummy and her website is nicely done also. I bet her significant other has a hard time on Valentine's Day. It's not like you can give her a box of chocolates.

Those look delicious. I laughed at Fletch's comment. She would be hard to buy for, but there is always diamonds, right?
