    Follow the Chocolate Trail

    Welcome to Stratford

    Follow the chocolate trail, follow the chocolate trail. Toto we're not in Kansas anymore. In fact, were in Stratford, Ontario where this trail leads you to chocolaty goodness. It is well known, "Come for the chocolate and stay for the plays". Or is it the other way around?

    Regardless of your favored order, savour Stratford and take a bite out of the chocolate trail. $20 gets you an all access pass to your choice of scrumptious tastings at eight stores out of a self-guided map of 21. This golden ticket will not only satisfy your sweet tooth but give chocoholics a chance to speak directly with each chocolatier and ask them the age old question- does working with chocolate really take the sweetness out of it?

    Savour Stratford One Delicious Bite at a Time

    Stratford this way Stratford

    On a beautiful sunny Saturday in September I went to the Savour Stratford Perth County Culinary Festival. I was there to celebrate the success of the Choco-locate iPhone app and also to check in on all the lovely chocolatiers and candy makers we have featured on our app.

    Savour Stratford has been awarded Ontario’s Best Culinary Experience and frankly I’m not the least bit surprised. The event was well organized with excellent food and interesting exhibits. Celebrity Chef Connie Desousa, who you might remember as the powerhouse terrine and sausage maker from “Top Chef Canada”, was there showing off her cooking prowess. Other expert chefs were demonstrating everything from cooking techniques to fancy knife skills with cool gadgets and knives from Bradshaw’s. There was an endless display of local food and artisan booths being appreciated by a huge crowd of people lending to the overall feeling of excitement in the air.

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!
