Jacques Torres Visits to Mix Chocolate and Wine on Foodie Call with Justin Warner (Video)

On this episode of Foodie Call, chocolate marries wine, and we all live happily ever after. But first, eponymous chocolatier Jacques Torres (perhaps you’ve heard of Mr. Chocolate?) stops by to officiate — and by that we mean he schools Justin Warner in the oh so important technique of tempering chocolate.

Tempering (an extra-careful melting method) ensures chocolate treats have the satisfying texture we’ve come to know and love. And when Justin combines chocolate with another crowd-pleaser (that delicious wine!), we’ve got a dessert we know will stand the test of time.
