My grandmother once told me the secret to enjoying chocolate- don't bite it. She learned this on Oprah, she commented, that a French woman had informed her. You could let it melt around your teeth and to the warm spot on the middle of the muscle of your tongue. Feel it over the soft crevasses on the top of your mouth, hold it under the muscle. I always eat chocolate that way now and think of her in her Sunday pant suit, telling me just how to get the most of my after dinner chocolate.
