I love cacao. Thanks to Equal Exchange for bringing me on this Culinary Adventure to the Dominican Republic to visit organic cacao farms, meet cacao farmers, stay in their homes and community, learn how cacao is grown, harvested; taste raw cacao; YUM! Learn about fair trade, fair prices for the coop farmers, and much more. It was an education and trans-formative experience. Thanks also to Equal Exchange for sharing these wonderful photos of our trip, November 2013, I hope you enjoy this visual feast.
Please leave a comment below and ask me any questions about my trip or the story of cacao from pod to dried seed to cocoa to chocolate bar.
