Chocolate: It's what's for dinner

In this, the big run-up to Valentine's Day, everyone seems to have chocolate on the brain.

Shelby Vittek, writing for Table Matters, is no different.

"I don’t mean devouring half a dozen Twix bars and counting it as a meal," she begins. "Polishing off an entire carton of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream by yourself doesn’t count either. I’m talking about using chocolate as an element in a savory dish. Yes, chocolate playing the role of something besides sweet."
