Faso Foods: Joie de vivre with Grashoff’s Belgian Chocolate Spreads + Moriba Teas

I’m with the lead singer from “The Dandy Warholes”. He performed at the 9:30 club. This picture doesn’t relate to Faso Foods but I figure, he could use the press. We had to take this picture three times, since he wanted to get the right.. pout?

A few months ago, my good friend Shanila and I wanted to have a gourmet foodie brunch day at her house. I brought along several of my finest Grashoff Chocolate jars, Moriba teas and Nutfield nuts for this wonderful occasion. My friend Shanila is a huuuge fan of Faso Foods. She’s addicted to Grashoff’s darkest Belgian chocolate blends, can’t stop nibbling on Nutfield’s macademia nuts and truly appreciates the tart taste behind Moriba’s hibiscus teas.

We’re both young, in our mid-twenties, and realize that there were so many delectable treats out there that needed to be polished of, by the two of us.  We decided to drive en route to the World Market located near Rockville Pike. During our long ( I say this facetiously) ride there, we simultaneously pondered exactly what we both wanted to get. Shanila wanted to get these Scottish wafers layered with caramel and chocolate.

I wanted green olives and spicey cheese spreads. I guess my tastes are more inclined towards savory faire. Anyways, we both zig-zagged the World Market for fine wines, salmon pate, cheeses, anchovies, crackers, pastries and Belgian Chocolate crisps. Surprisingly enough, we both didn’t spend too much. For the meager price of $20 dollars, we afforded ourselves divine treats from across the globe.

Olive, Cheese and anchovies. Surprisingly tasty?

Shanila and I experimented with different snack ideas. Since I have more of a savory palate, I experimented with our jack cheese blend, salmon pate, olives and anchovy selections.  Did you know that if you add Grashoff’s tart berry jams plus pepper jack cheese, you would be able to create a taste-explosion in your mouth?  It was, by far, the best combo we both ever cooked up that day.

Shanila loved the Belgian chocolate crisp!

Since Shanila had more of a sweeter palate than me, she digged right into Grashoff’s Belgian Chocolate Spreads. She sampled the ginger, coconut rum ( her current favorite), pistachio, chili, Gentleman’s dark, caramel and the Murray River Salt. At first she sampled them on crackers, later she dipped the chocolate in ice cream, strawberries and bananas. She’s definitely an epicurean of fine chocolates.

Grashoff’s Belgian Chocolate spreads.. literally left her with a smile all day 🙂

Both Shanila and I had a strong addiction for Nutfield’s Chili flavored macademia nuts. One was never enough and we ended up eating half the container. I’ve never had a macademia nut as good at Nutfield’s and neither has Shanila.

Mango Curry Sauce… Totally yummy on chicken, crackers and as an added flavoring.

Did you know Ollie Schmidt, the man behind Grashoff Belgian Chocolate spreads, is a world-class chef? Well, now you know. Anyways, since he’s a Culinary-God, he knows how to make jams, sauces and chocolate sauces taste the way they should. Like perfection.

Shanila and I pigged out on Grashoff’s mango curry sauce. We dipped in our fancy, quasi-pricey crackers into this creamy yet rich sauces.Both Shanila and I loved it. It was the right amount of spice blended with the right amount of aromatic flavorings.

We sampled 3-4 different types of teas. We both concluded that Moriba’s love tea must have some potent ingredients since it made us both feel very euphoric, all of a sudden?

After noshing on most of these decadent items, we decided to quench our thirst with wordly teas. Moriba is the expert in the tea industry. His ginger, hibiscus and love teas have different properties that could either ail a stomach ache or fix a broken heart. Plus his hibiscus tea has a very addictive tart taste. You must try it and see!

Hibiscus instantly won us over but we both knew that if we had a stomach ache, we had to drink the Ginger tea.  We both also joked about playing cupid. We had this really potent love tea in our possession and we wanted to spread true love to couples who really needed it.

Did you know Moriba has an ACTUAL love tea? Yes, he does. If you need help with your love life, contact Faso Foods. We carry Grashoff’s Belgian chocolate which can ignite the mood and Moriba’s love tea which can cement everlasting love.

Joie de vivre! We sure did find delight in living carefree that day. Our gourmet brunch helped us throw our worries out the window and unwind as the sun started to sleep.
