I guess I will have to try the recipe to discover for myself this famous cocoa dimension!!
A quick way with aubergine/eggplant:
Halve lengthways, cut two deep slits along length of flesh but not through to skin, on each half, place cut-side down on well-oiled baking sheet and bake in very hot oven - say 220C - for about 15 mins. Goes meltingly tender and is nice just topped with some goats cheese melted over or with roasted veg.
