Chocolate bark seems to be everywhere these days, but you know Andreas is gonna make it even better. Fresh pistachios and cardamom swimming in a sea of dark Guittard chocolate. I can’t write about this stuff without salivating. I’m a pistachio nut, and speaking of pistachio nuts, here’s some very useful information for your next party of friends. Iran is the largest producer of pistachios in the world, with California in close second. Pistachios are one of the oldest flowering trees in the world – they are mentioned in Genesis and were grown in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The Queen of Sheba was apparently a bigger fan than I am. She demanded that the entire region’s pistachio harvest be set aside just for her. For safety reasons, you should eat the whole bag of pistachios at once, because they can spontaneously combust if stored improperly. I’m sure that’s what the Queen of Sheba did.
