Scharffen Berger blues

So Robert Steinberg, the doctor turned chocolatier who founded the Bay Area's own Scharffen Berger chocolate, died this week. He is an excellent example of "What would you do if you knew you were going to die?" leaving his medical practice to apprentice himself to a chocolate-maker in Lyon, France when he (Steinberg) was diagnosed with the lymphatic cancer that eventually killed him. But not until he had founded a chocolate company that was part of his life for over ten years.

Steinberg was 61. Seems to me he got the good out of life. Good on you, Dr. Steinberg. (Picture is from Scharffen Berger's homepage:
