Ariel Wolansky wanted to do something that would have a positive impact on the world. It all started with growing food, which then turned into a passion for cooking that extended into making chocolate sustainably with select ingredients that take you on an epic journey. How is it made? How is it sourced?
ABOUT THE EXPERT: Ariel, of Choquiero Chocolate, was born in Argentina and also lived in Chile. He has traveled to Mexico, Guatemala and Peru to get to know the cacao trees and traditions in chocolate making and cacao ceremonies. He believes in honoring the cacao and only makes dark chocolates with the purest of ingredients. He does not believe in adding ingredients that take away from the cacao flavor such as CBD or other popular supplements that make higher profits. Choquiero Chocolate uses ceremonial grade cacao, but Ariel does not want to commercialize the word “ceremonial”. Ariel hosts free, monthly chocolate and tea gatherings and loves to help people reach their dreams.
