Of course you’ve eaten chocolates! Who hasn’t? But if your tryst with chocolates is limited to chomping on a bag of kisses or stealing Ferrero Rochers from your sister’s cupboard or grabbing a bar of Hershey while with your friends, I have to say that your association with this sinful indulgence has been sadly limited.
Chocolate making is an art form in its own right. Much like cooking, chocolatiers from all over the world are constantly attempting to reinvent the taste of chocolate by experimenting with the different kinds of cocoa from all over the world and infusing a bit of creativity spurred by their innovative minds. No two pieces are alike and each piece that you sink your teeth into is nothing short of an ecstatic revelation to a chocoholic.
Mahatma Gandhi believed that the soul of India lay in its villages. So, the next time you are planning a trip to India and wish to experience the country at its most basic, grass root level, skip the metropolitan cities, the temples, palaces and shopping malls and make your way to Choki Dhani in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan.
Choki Dhani translates to “Fine Hamlet” and it is among the most popular village resorts in India. The amenities and facilities in this resort are undoubtedly 5 star but the USP of Choki Dhani lies in its typical village design, complete with mud & thatch dwellings, similar to what you would commonly notice dotting the landscape of Rajasthan.
