I go through hazelnut phases where I both crave and use sthe glorious filbert in savory and sweet creations and then poof, I the word praline makes me run in another direction.
Last night I had a glorious salad of kohlrabi and toasted hazelnut, reigniting my taste buds for the nut. What to do when it is morning and not time for a full on treat? Fall somewhere in the middle with a chocolate hazelnut milkshake.
I love to top chocolate treats with freshly grated nutmeg and a sprinkle of seasalt. THis has been a tradition for many years and today was no exception. Not a dessert, and defnitely not a leafy green blend, this one falls somewhere in the middle.
