Diplomacy in Action!

I recently attended a summit meeting with the President of Coffee and the Duchess of Mint at the Duchess’ palatial mountaintop estate in the Andes.

As we strolled through her many courtyards and mentholated gardens, we spoke of a great many topics, including how to combine the resources of our three separate domains to further the causes of luxury and indulgence. After much deliberation, and many 64-oz solid-gold tankards of Peppermint Mocha Lattes*, we finally decided on the amazing White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Cookies from Izy Hossack’s outstanding Top With Cinnamon blog.


The cookies were prepared and handed out to each member of the Duchess’ household staff, many of whom later reported experiencing luxury levels of 8.5 or higher on the Stewart/Garten scale.

As for the three of us, The Duchess described the cookies as “Sublime,” while the President gave them two very jittery thumbs-up. I myself, overwhelmed by the spirit of our renewed unity, released four doves to celebrate our alliance.
