March is the proper time to go on a world tour out of your lounge. Within the Northern Hemisphere, early March affords good climate for delivery, and a blissful scarcity of Hallmark holidays and low-cost chocolate.
Megan Giller and I’ve put collectively a collection of interviews (and tastings!) of darkish chocolate and we’re inviting you to tune in.
The brief model:
In March 2021, on my Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram pages, I’ll be posting dwell interviews and tastings with among the biggest chocolate makers of our time. And you may pre-order the bars and style alongside if you happen to like. For those who’ve obtained chocolate in hand, be happy to affix in with feedback or dwell suggestions as we go.
Darkish chocolate, made by hand, by artisans who begin with the bean and take all of it the way in which to the completed product–it’s particular. There are tones and notes and flavors which you can study to style. It’s enjoyable to share. It’s an inexpensive luxurious–you should purchase the equal of a $500 bottle of wine in chocolate type for $11 or so. You possibly can even get snobby and discuss trinitario and porcelana beans…
And the individuals who develop the beans, the farmers, are among the poorest folks on the earth, typically on the mercy of a heartless industrial meals chain. The bars we’ll be tasting are all from producers who pay their farmers considerably greater than the clearing worth. If we are able to unfold the phrase about this craft, they’ll all do higher.
Because of Megan for serving to me make this occur, and because of everybody who makes issues a bit extra scrumptious, bringing care and dignity to the world on the similar time.
