A long, long. . . long time ago there was a road stretching all the way from China, through the orient east, across the mountains and deserts of the Middle East, around the shores of the Mediterranean, and into Europe. On this road came silk.
Now, at another date a ship set sail across the sea, discovered the “Americas” and eventually brought back many wonders such as gold and silver, as well as coffee and the greatest treasure of them all, chocolate.
To make this muffin Frank Michaud walked the ruins of the silk-road, sailed to South America, gathered his ingredients within their history and baked it all. Have a taste of history, this muffin’s practically global!
