I love to watch creative people. They are always busy with the most diverse activities. Creativity usually comes out on different levels. Often, but not always, they are women. Both my grandmothers were real thousandpots, my Mom is a great chef, deserving soprano, all-time gardener and so much more.

Only the darkness of souls estranged of nature
can invent a male god
with a virgin mother. "
Pleasure without guilt is not available on the market, so, I fabricate it myself!
Following the advice 'Let your food be your medicine' I created a series of chocolates:
85% cocoa, only nuts, fruits and spices as filling and a little belgian savoir-faire!.

Tastes divine and devilish at the same time..
