GLOBE TREKKER Food Hour: The Story of Chocolate

 

For centuries, people the world over have turned to the delicacy of chocolate for rituals, medicine, romance and sheer pleasure. In this informative and entertaining documentary, Trekker Judith Jones reveals how our love affair with chocolate began in Mesoamerica, present-day Southern Mexico and Central America, where people living deep in the tropical rainforests discovered the edible properties of Theobroma cacao, referred to as “the food of the gods.” With fellow Trekkers from around the world, Judith discovers the extraordinary popularity behind the pleasure of chocolate.
