My favourite chocolate delivery method has always been in hot, milky, rich, drinking form. Through this autumn and winter, we will be sampling as many different purveyors of this heavenly liquid, locally and where we travel, and reporting our findings.

Our first offering: Caffé Fantastico Tré at The Parkside on Humboldt Street in Victoria.

Yummy cookies and GJ’s Americano accompany my hot chocolate: not too sweet, subtle and creamy.
