  1. do you always use real sugar in your recipes?

  2. Thank you! I’ve been searching for chocolate with coriander since my husband brought me a Jeff de Bruges confection from Paris 5 years ago. It seems like many people here in the States can’t even imagine the pairing. I hope your sorbet will be the answer to my quest!
