Datil a la Lisse‎ > ‎

Like Datils for Chocolate

In the beginning was chocolate.  And only chocolate could tame the heart of the fiery St. Augustine datil.

Thus was born “Like Datils for Chocolate”.  A new way of looking at datils, inspired by by the Rose Petal Sauce that Tita cooked for her secret lover, Pedro, in Laura Esquival’s novel, Like Water for Chocolate. 

Like Datils for Chocolate was perfect, or so it thought. Until it met Bread…
