Celebrating Valentine’s Day – Brooklyn Style

Dear Readers,

In a few hours we will celebrate Valentine’s Day 2016. I must admit that everyday is cause for celebration, but I enjoy the special feeling associated with this day.

For me, Valentine’s Day is not complete until I have a slice of my favorite chocolate cake, chocolate truffles and a glass of champagne. The good news is Brooklyn has many outstanding bakeries and chocolate shops to make any day special. Today I am sharing a few of my favorite desserts and where you may purchase them. I’ve also included some champagne suggestions for good measure.
