Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry

“Lower-quality cacao beans often get mixed in with premium varieties on their way to becoming chocolate bars, truffles, sauces and liqueurs.”

In these light tacos, the tart and bright flowers are mixed with roasted potatoes (regular or the sweet kind), your choice of shredded chicken or beef (you can add pieces of shrimp instead if you like) and sautéed vegetables before being wrapped in a lettuce leaf “tortilla.”

Juliette Binoche

One of the most beautiful women in the world, ever, and I mean, ever, is the one and only Juliette Binoche. She is a preeminent, a transcendent actress I may add, who has superb qualities. She is a polyglot who knows the world and lives in it with intensity and dignity. Oh, and she loves quotes, like I do.

“What I love the most about this crazy life is the adventure of it”—Juliette Binoche
