Chocolate Bars and Cheesecake

I usually buy their 70% bar in the 20 minute break between our first and second morning class*. There is a tabaccheria shop a few steps away from the school and I pop in for a new bar every day. I haven’t always been a big fan of Perugina chocolate (I know, everyone loves Baci candies and so do I) but most of their products are too sweet. This bar has bits of cacao nib in it. It is not too sweet and there is a little crunch with every bite. I usually pass the bar around the class. Our teacher only likes milk chocolate so I’m not winning any points there (her loss). Anyway, Mark already smoozed her all up with a cheesecake (torte di ricotta) made with ricotta and Greek yogurt with a biscotti crumb crust…that he made (and it wasn’t easy in our apartment’s small kitchen)! Everyone thinks Mark walks on water (un buon cuoco - good cook) and I’m a free-loader. Jeez. Hey, I do laundry.

* We we took Italian language classes in Florence in 2007 - 2008. We went to Centro Machiavelli, which during our time there had classrooms in Santo Spirito, Florence.
