Guest Post for Platter Talk
The food blogosphere is a virtual dining room where enthusiasts create, publish, share, inspire, and nosh on food from all over the globe. I’ve been a member of this internet community since 2010, and I’ve met more than a lifetime of terrific people.

It’s one of the best ways to meet new people: they stop by—leave a wonderful remark in support of your work, and then intrigue over your new visitor inspires you to reciprocate in kind. It is within these mutual exchanges a friendship ensues, and suddenly the world seems like a much smaller, warmer place.

I align with his ideals about trying new foods or cuisines, particularly when it comes to springing them on the family. Another common ground we share is fatherhood, and I’m sure Dan would agree that it is a privilege to cook the family meals.
Returning to the book, the source which led me to my light bulb moment is where my answer awaited me. That thick disc of luscious and creamy chocolate was a photograph of a deep dark chocolate cheesecake…
Today it is my distinct pleasure to be Dan’s guest at his place for dinner, and I’m bringing dessert! Please join us at Platter Talk for some great conversation, and this sumptuous chocolate cheesecake I’ve been taunting you with in pictures and quotes from the story I’ve shared there. That’s where you’ll find the recipe for the Chocolate Fix Cheesecake. Kindly visit, have a look around and say hello. I’m confident you’ll find Platter Talk to be a place for tasty inspiration.
