App-etizer for chocolate lovers

* Would-be chocolatiers have a new weapon in their arsenal via the latest iPhone app from master chocolate-maker Jacques Torres. His new app, MrChocolate, offers a virtual tour of his Brooklyn chocolate factory/retail outlet, a chocolate glossary, and the history of chocolate, all for free. An upgrade will get you access to how-tos, techniques and recipes. * If you’ve been avoiding eggs for health reasons, the USDA just gave you the okay to start ordering omelets again, though not on a daily basis. The agency randomly sampled eggs from across the country and found that commercial eggs now have 14 percent cholesterol and 64 percent more vitamin D than was previously thought. Despite that drop in cholesterol, one egg still has 185 milligrams, and two eggs exceed the recommended daily dose of cholesterol.
