    wow that is a good supervisor who understands you need good chocolate to get you through the phd – you must now look forward to her travels :-)

    A great supervisor indeed. Everyone who has attempted any sort of thesis knows to their very core that it is impossible without chocolate. I got mine bound in Cadbury’s purple as a mark of that commitment. I do like the sound of El Rey’s white chocolate, it might have to go on the wish list with the Vestri.

    Now you HAVE to get to work ;)

    I love baking with Oscuro – a well-priced, high-quality bulk chocolate. And El Rey Caoba milk is the best milk chocolate around, period. Love that Venezuelan chocolate.

    Did you say ‘deodorised chocolate’? Yes, you did. Don’t know why, but I’m constantly amazed at the length suppliers go to to ensure a place in food chains!!! This chocky sounds like a good one for me…, dark but not too dark & appropriately smelly ;)

    Two of the most important ingredients for making it through a PhD in one piece: good supervisor, and good chocolate!

    Your supervisor is a clever one – give the girl chocolate; now she’ll WORK.

    Gosh aren’t you lucky having such a lovley PhD supervisor that not only knows you so well but is so generous in providing you, your indulgences. Hmmm now I keep thinking of what kind of chocolates I could provide to you from MY region of the world ;)

    You are clearly a match made in heaven! Well if I had known that PhD’s came with chocolate assistance I might have tried to go for one :P

    So El Rey’s Apamate is you?

  11. Lexi

    Mine hasn’t come with chocolate assistance at all! I’m going to send your blog to my supervisor.

    I thought you were supposed to give an apple to your teacher, but chocolate from your supervisor sounds like a much better deal! I love your tasting notes too – so articulate and precise!

    They have this amazing looking chocolate in the US? I must find. I like all types of dark chocolate, but the ones that aren’t as bitter become so addictive!

    My mouth is watering. That sounds divine! But I just have to ask: irons her nightgown?!?

    Perhaps we should meet up half-way and you can give me all your chocolates Ms. Hannah :D have a wonderful dayyy

    Hello there Hannah,

    You know… I have to bow down on the floor. You are truly a chocolate connoisseur! I am just a newbie.
    My favorites are milk ones. I parted away from the pretentious chocoholic roads of dark chocolate and take a reverse back to my childhood faves.
    I love Javanese stuff and valrhona… Any recommendations?
    Well, good to know you.

    Love the metahpor comparing the chocolate bar to the girl at the party. What a good description! The chocolate sounds wonderful, but I’m more intrigued by their white chocolate – I must find one of those bars!

    Have you accumulated enough coconut flour recipes yet? ;)

  18. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    I get such chocolate cravings every time I read your blog! Cruel… I have none here :)

  19. Susan

    That’s pretty cool to get presents from your teachers! Especially edible ones!

    [...] of course, moments when I thought I had made the right choice. Moments such as chatting with my wonderful supervisor, or teaching and laughing with my first year Sociology students. Increasingly, though, I was waking [...]
