“Valentine’s Day?” remarked a friend of ours the other day, “Isn’t the whole occasion kind of meh?” Shelf Life’s response: not while brownies retain even the smallest crumb of allure. Every year at this time Shelf Life goes on a serious brownie hunt; recently we ordered up (from Ottawa) a Carolina’s Box Of Goodness gift package. The pretty box contains an artisanal chocolate fudge brownie plus a small jar of dulce de leche. Carolina Foresti is a Brazilian-born custom cake baker who trained at Café Boulud in New York and whose signature brownies derive from a family recipe. Each batch is made from premium Belgian chocolate, Canada Grade AA butter, Ontario eggs, and Madagascar bourbon vanilla. The accompanying fleur de sel – dulce de leche is also made from all-natural ingredients. Shelf Life took one bite of the brownie and concluded: no meh here. This is a fresh, perfectly chewy, fully loaded treat, so rich we cut it into pieces and enjoyed it all day. In the world of desserts, the word ‘decadent’ is overused, so Shelf Life will abstain – right after we finish this decadent bowl of vanilla ice cream and brownie slice drizzled with warm, caramelly dulce de leche. Carolina’s delivers ideal Valentine’s Day delectables in the mail, for only $12.50. It must be love.
