“One of the first recipes David Lebovitz put up on his site was a hot chocolate recipe from Wittamer, one of the best chocolate shops in Brussels, where he actually worked for a time. The head chocolatier, Michael Lewis gave him this recipe, which they serve in their chic tea salon overlooking the place Sablon. Try to find the best chocolate you can(30-40%). Adapted from The Great Book of Chocolate.”
