"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

¾ cup cocoa powder (I used Valrhona) 1 cup sugar pinch salt (1/4 tsp) 1 cup boiling water 1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Whisk together cocoa, sugar and salt until well blended in medium saucepan. Add enough water to make a thick paste and incorporate all dry ingredients. Add remaining water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for two minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla if using. Let cool and store in a jar or squeeze bottle in the fridge.
