In Timothy Leary's eight-circuit model of consciousness, the eighth circuit is the one you need to get to for out-of-body experiences. Here's a shortcut: Truffles from the Secret Chocolatier. Sold at the South End Tailgate Farmers Market (Tuesdays and Saturdays) and given to me by food editor Kathleen Purvis, these are much more advisable than the LSD for which Leary was a cheerleader.

For those of you who haven't tried these chocolates....YOU MUST! Go to the Tailgate Market and get a free sample. SAVOR the little piece of chocolate heaven on earth. Mmmmm.....These are not to be chomped like Hershey's...Let them dissolve in your mouth and the unique flavors surprise and soothe you! I highly recommend the Basil, Lavender, Ginger, Orange....well, ALL of them!

Satisfy is not the word. These were the BEST chocolates I have ever had. You have heard of chocolate being orgasmic, well make sure you have the cigarettes at hand after eating one of these. I have never had a basil truffle before last night, I can't wait to have another now.

This is the best thing I've ever had with my clothes on!
I splurged and bought three truffles (basil, ginger and coffee bean) and they are out of this world delicious! Jim said they are probably the best truffles he's ever had, and he's had them from Fran's in Seattle, Moonstruck in Portland and Pierre Hermes in Paris. Next week, I'm going to sneak a bottle of Banyuls wine (a dessert wine from the Languedoc region of France) to the market I think Bill and his wife need to try this with their creations. C'est magnifique!
If you want time to stop briefly, and a little bit of heaven to envelope you, then bite into a Secret Chocolatier truffle.
The absolute best truffle we have ever tasted. Clearly beat the Chocolate Fetish in Asheville, NC.
Oh delicious white chocolate truffle, you melt as wonderfully as a snowflake upon my tongue. You quench my sweet craving like a cool glass of water in the heat of summer. Succulent truffle of wondrous concoction I desire your luscious smooth texture once more. Until I can have you to myself again, I will remember you as sweetly as a childhood memory.

I've lived and travelled all over the world and never found a match to his products. Yours are right up there and will order again.
