Beth Tully

In the second half, local chocolatier Beth Tully joins me in studio with some of her new Macarons.  A macaron is a sweet meringue-based confectionery made with eggs, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food colouring.  Beth is making some really creative cookies to add to the great assortment of exceptional hand crafted chocolates already available at Cocoa Dulce – Wichita’s and the Midwest’s finest. 

Yummy Macarons from Cocoa Dulce and Beth Tully…

Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:

NV Korbel Sweet Cuvee
Each of the grape varieties used in the Sweet Cuvee blend plays an important role. Chenin Blanc gives the blend a delicate forward fruit character. Chardonnay gives the blend the body and structure needed to balance with the sweet finish. French Colombard contributes a bright acidity and citrus character. Finally, Muscat Canelli brings the blend together with an appealing tropical and floral flavor.

Something Sparkling that goes great with Cookies, this wine is fresh and aromatic; sweet and easy on the palate; give this one a nice chill and enjoy.
