    The upcoming Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and its extensive array of celeb gawking opportunities (HI BRAD) got me thinking…if I was new to the city and looking for a sweet treat to give to my uber famous director- how would I know where to go? Besides if I am a celeb I am probably on some crazy diet and can only eat vegan chocolate or if I am Angelina (hey, I girl can dream OK) I will only purchase fair trade. Don’t worry Angie, Choco-locate has got you covered. Download the Choco-locate app and volà, an entire listing of artisan, vegan and fair trade chocolate in Toronto. Sorry for the shameless plug but listen here…

    Chocolate Art

    Would you buy chocolate art?

    • Can I eat it?

    Some people play with their food, but I wouldn’t call that art.

    Working away
    But take a block of solid chocolate and turn it into a 10 foot Orangutan, and I would call it a masterpiece. Surprisingly, chocolate art is quite commonplace in the chocolate world. It is a respected art form ranging from the bizarre and wacky to the tasteful and high art variety.

    Just about anything you can imagine has been moulded into a chocolate sculpture of some sort. Just to name a few: An edible chocolate ‘birth of Venus', a chocolate Edward Cullen (insert swooning Twilight fans), Nike kicks, President Obama, the leaning tower of Pisa, chocolate shoes, chocolate dresses, the Arc de Triomphe, Karl Lagerfeld’s hottie BF posing in a room made entirely of chocolate.

When award winning filmmaker Lalita Krishna was in Silver Springs, Maryland, pitching PBS on her new documentary "Semi-sweet," she found herself in a mall looking for some of the sweet stuff to take to the meeting. That's when she had a "light-bulb moment" about the perfect "transmedia" extension to her documentary about "the world of chocolate," which she was proposing to shoot at locations in Africa, Europe, the US and Canada.

'Film tells the not-so-sweet side of chocolate'

What do you think of when you think of chocolate? Decadence? Dieting? An industry rife with exploitation and labour abuses?

Toronto director Michael Allcock offers a peek at the various sides of chocolate in the new documentary Semisweet: Life In Chocolate, airing on TVO on June 6. The film tells four stories – of Ron Obadia and Nadine Artemis, two raw food enthusiasts; of employees who live and work in Hershey, Pa., known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” and more.

Chocolate is rich in phenolics, the same heart protective antioxidants found in wine. Indulgence? I call it self preservation!
