There is always much to think about as the year begins, and after a very hectic Autumn and December, I resolve to read and cook slower, and eat slowly. For the Winter, we have closed the shop on Monday, altered the hours on the other days a wee bit, and as I post events for the Winter and Spring, my thoughts are leaning toward the course of health and comfort. To compliment my desire of gentle pleasure, I am looking forward to January 17th, when the "Hot Chocolate Festival" begins. A whole month of adventuring into participating venues to sample their creations. How lovely is this idea, a small festival celebrating the ritual and tradition of this most comforting drink.

Happy New Year and here's to embracing the challenges of 2015 with joyful enthusiasm.
