Gourmet chocolate is economic lifeline in Venezuela crisis Bars made in Venezuela, in contrast, are made with 100 per cent local cocoa.

The homework most college students have is never as sweet as what the students at the Culinary Institute of Michigan have to do. One of the first assignment students had in the class this year was to create a chocolate piece surrounding the theme... Students had to create a sketch of an egg, then turn that sketch into a chocolate creation. Todd took a trip to the institute to talk to students about their projects, and the creation progress behind their chocolate masterpieces. For more information about becoming a student at CIM or to schedule a visit, call 1-855-487-7888 or visit them online.

About three decades ago, something devastating happened in Brazil. An infectious disease had struck the cacao trees and threatened to wipe out the population. If something wasn't done, chocolate was surely going to disappear. Researchers went into the fields of Brazil in the hopes of saving one of the most beloved foods on Earth. The first order of business was to find the culprit causing all the trouble. Researchers discovered the pathogen to be a very old foe first described in the 1700s. Back then, it was called Witches Broom Disease. Over time, it was found to be caused by a fungus called Moniliophthora perniciosa. This fungal villain causes a terrible disease. Once it latches on to a tree, it first sucks all the nutrients away effectively starving the plant.
Virginia-based Starr Hill has been around just short of forever, and has managed to reinvigorate their lineup in the last couple of years, remaking recipes for their flagships and introducing new limited-edition beers at a serious clip. And we like the cut of their jib. Their new double IPA impressed the hell out of us not that long ago, and their coffee stout, Little Red RooStarr, earned the number six spot in our most recent blind tasting of non-imperial stouts, beating 60 other stouts in...
A pastry chef, a cannabis connoisseur and a 10-year-old walk into The Washington Post. There’s no punchline. That’s who we asked to judge some of the most popular chocolate chip cookie recipes on the web. Arguably more American than apple pie, this cookie — which celebrates its 80th birthday next year — is adored for its simplicity and nostalgic nature. Because opinions differ widely about how the perfect chocolate chip cookie should taste, the internet is swimming with recipes claiming to be...
