Centenarian Brazilian architect of world renown and designer of Brazillia, the capital city has given his talents to the design of chocolate, not just any old chocolate but very superior stuff. It comes in it’s own wooden box, with tasting roundels below three of these little architectural bars. I’d say it was an heirloom but I’m not sure that the grandchildren would appreciate it. I’ll also bet that the women in Senor Niermeyer’s life had a hand in this project, I know that I’d have!

Check out the menu and the boutiques at the Aquim Gastronomy site and be sure to let me know if you are visiting Ipanema, purely for research purposes of course.
