    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-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!

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.

'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!
