I just got back from a weekend trip to Los Angeles. I've got lots of restaurant reports and food pictures to share with you, but first let's talk about candy.
I've been reading Nina's Sweet Napa blog for a couple of years. When I started reading, she was a culinary student in Napa with a love for candymaking. Now, she's in Los Angeles and the owner of the BonBonBar company, which has been mentioned in both Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines. I've really enjoyed watching her develop the business from the ground up, and I was able to meet her this weekend. I sampled quite a few of her products, which were all amazing, and couldn't resist getting a whole assortment of treats. She was even nice enough to bring me one of her limited edition Valentine's Day cherry bars.
I want to share the BonBonBar love with all of you, so I'm giving away a bag of classic BonBonBar caramels. Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite kind of candy bar, and a winner will be drawn at random. The deadline for comments is Wednesday, February 4th at 8:00 pm PST.
