Secret Ingredient: Chocolate

Mirna surprised me with an all chocolate meal for our first year wedding anniversary. She even made the menu on a slab of dark chocolate. She's nuts. Meal was nuts. I'm a lucky guy. The menu:

1. A simple red wine vinaigrette salad with cocoa nibs.
2. A crepe with chocolate dipped bacon and pistachio crumbs.
3. Hand made chocolate pasta tossed together with the meat and broth of short braised ribs.
4. Chocolate covered fruit balls with almond shavings. The balls consist of dates, dried figs,dried apricots and walnuts.
