    Choco-locate in San Fran!

    chocolocateteam — 2 years ago


    San Francisco is a food mecca allowing gourmet foodies of all types to indulge in vast flavours and cultures. But you may to surprised to note that a few unusual foods actually come from the San Fran area. For example, the Popsicle is a San Fran native and was first invented in the San Fran area by an eleven-year-old chap! Now that food on a stick is an everyday go to, we have Frank Epperson to thank for the original refreshing snack. The Popsicle was first invented in 1905. Did you know some other San Fran inventions include the fortune cookie, Cioppino (a fish stew) and the Chicken Tetrazzini?

    But more importantly, can you guess why choco-locate ventured there? Not just for some Nestle chocolate or Neuhaus chocolate, but for their local chocolatier of course! Yes, choco-locate has added San Fransicso to their long list of chocolaty locations!

    Director's Experience in Mali

    michael — 4 years ago

    This is my fifth day in Mali. I’m here with my producer Lalita Krishna on a scouting mission. We start shooting in 3 days and we want to make sure that all the details are in place when the crew finally arrives to film. You can only check over so many things from back home – it’s important to see stuff up close and personal. We’ve only got one shot at this and so we want to make sure that everything’s all right.

    As well as double-checking our accommodations and transportation for the 10-day shoot, we also need to make sure that our interviewees –subjects for the film – are ready to share their stories.

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!
