I can't bring everyone to Ghana, so I'm bringing it to you --what I learned while I was there anyway. Come nerd out with me through tales of flat tires, illness, perseverance, and a brief history lesson, as I explore the topics of human rights and environmental disaster within one of the world's top cocoa producing regions. A compassionate and resourceful discussion for anyone interested in learning about modern slavery, ethical cacao sourcing, or nonprofit organizations at a grassroots level.
One of my favorite festivals of the year! Celebrate the love of chocolate in Dallas and meet chocolate makers, chocolatiers, artisans, and fellow chocolate lovers alike. When you need a break from sampling chocolate (there is such a thing), be sure not to miss the live demonstrations of the chocolate making process!
Also, check out the silent auction benefiting the DallasChocolate.org scholarship fund, VIP access, food trucks, an interactive kids table, and free parking. For details and tickets visit http://dallaschocolate.org/

Allergies aside, it's a lucky time to be in Texas. February is my favorite time of year at Central Market. Celebrating Valentine's Day (I'll take any excuse to celebrate the love of chocolate) this local grocery chain is full of surprises throughout the week, to include real live chocolate makers.
