    Have You Tried Mole?

    • Yes, Delish!


    • Chocolate Chicken? What's that?


    • No, Never?


    A chocolate meal is my ideal dinner, but let’s face it, if you care in the least bit about a balanced lifestyle this probably only happens once in a blue moon. So when I discovered a dish that is both hearty, nutritious and features chocolate for breakfast you bet I was game! Mole- pronounced mó-lay- is simply chocolate chicken. But this isn’t just your ordinary chicken. This chocolate trail starts in Mexico.

    Often the staple meal at weddings, Mole is not as simple as it sounds. It is VERY rarely just quickly thrown together. Sometimes taking a few days, family and friends come together to chop, stir and stew on this delightful dish. Everyone helps out to share the labour, gossip and create the dish in a very social environment. Mole holds strong traditions but many argue on its true origins.

    Choco In the Classroom

    Chocolate, I love the stuff. I can talk about it at the drop of a hat and go on forever. So, it seems, can many others. There are chocolate books and bibles a plenty…. not to mention chocolate blogs about fine chocolates and just about any chocolate information you could want or need to know. One blog I visited had 349 pages of entries!

    Would you pay more for fair trade chocolate?

    • Definitely


    • No


    • What is fair trade?


    In the stomach of the food movement things are beginning to stir. Consumers are becoming thirsty for knowledge about the products they consume and support. Where does the food I purchase come from? How does it get from the ground to my plate? What can I really do? Now don't get your stomach all in a knot. You don't have to become a detective to sort all this out, it just takes a little street wise and a thing we call google. If there is anything I have learned from School House Rock, "It's great to learn because knowledge is power!"

Choco-locate in Ontario Business Report

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!
