That’s especially true for Hawaiian cocoa, which will surprise anyone who thinks they know what chocolate tastes like. Hawaii is the only state in the U. S. where cacao can grow, and because it’s an island ecosystem, “you have all these pockets of different flavors,” Nat explained, because of the varying weather systems. “They say if you don’t like the weather in Hawaii you can just go to the next valley and it’ll be different. However, no one attempted to make chocolate from the plant in Hawaii for almost 100 years.

For a skilled butcher, a Utah chocolatemaker and a jam producer, being finalists for the 2018 Good Food Awards is like being nominated for an Academy Award. “For a small producer, it’s equivalent to a filmmaker winning an Oscar,” said John Francis, who owns and operates Salt Lake City’s Amour Spreads with his wife, Casee.

At first glance, the curious implement—a carved, hand-painted wooden stick, 11.5 inches long, with a slender handle at one end and a knob at the other—appears unprepossessing enough. Yet the kitchen tool, currently on display as part of the "Mexican Treasures of the Smithsonian" exhibition at the S. Dillon Ripley Center in Washington, D.C., represents the history of a culture and the epic story of a passionately desired product. The molinillo, or stirrer—this one dating from the 1930s—is a...
