The food of love ...

The Chocolate Shop, English Market, Cork

Shakespeare said that “If music be the food of love …”. Of course, I’m sure he’s right, but I would like to also put forward the case for something else … chocolate!

Eat … delicacies that melt in your mouth. Likewise knowledge, and wisdom for your soul— Get that and your future's secured, your hope is on solid rock.

Proverbs 26:13,14 (Abbreviated from The Message)

Nom nom! Dark chocolate I like.

It being Lent, not one of those will cross your lips until next Sunday!

It's not so much the melt in the mouth that gets me, it's the ravishing scent of the chocolate shop. Neuhaus in Brussels calls from the other end of the arcade - is it the same in the English Market?

Ha Ha, Joc I don't know about from the other end of the arcade, this shop is tucked into a corner and it just sort of sneaks up on you and then grabs you unexpectedly!

Ian, of course none of my purchase (a moderately sized box of Pralines for €16) will be consumed during Lent ;-)

Grannymar - I concur!
