Searching Out the World's Rarest Chocolate

PRESENTED ON APR 14, 2015
IN LOUISVILLE @ VOL 15

"Lima is home to over 150 different micro-climates and located very close to the ecquator, and this makes it a pretty damn fine place to grow cacoa." 

In Searching Out the World's Rarest Chocolate from PechaKucha Night Louisville Vol. 15Erika Chavez-Graziano recounts her travel to a remote region of Peru on a quest to find "Fortunado #4", the world's rarest cacao. Once thought to be extinct, a lone tree, from which Furtunado #4 comes, was recently re-discovered, and having come back from the dead, now serves as the mother tree for the continuation of this rare chocolate.

Eat Me: A Brief Look at the Long History of Women and Chocolate

BY LIZ GOAD
@ VOL 11 ON FEB 15, 2019

"Decadent. Seductive. Sinful." When it comes to chocolate, sex sells. And it specifically sells to women. Even though research shows that men and women consume roughly the same amount of chocolate, advertisements are mainly targeted at women, encouraging them to "indulge" their cravings and deepest desires.

While this may seem like a new phenomenon, the association between chocolate and female sexuality predates the modern ad campaign. In fact, some scholars trace it all the way back to the Mesoamerican civilizations that first cultivated Theobroma cacao. Liz Goad takes a quick jog through chocolate’s long, tawdry history to find out where this theme originated and how it has evolved over the centuries.
