Since the event is put on by the German community in Quito (which is quite strong, by the way), bratwurst, potato salad, and beer are in no short supply.
So don't forget to include this event for your next year's Christmas shopping. You will definitely find foods, crafts, and other goods here you'll never see anywhere else in Quito. Our favorite are these hand-made salt bowls and other table items made out of palm wood. Wonderful gifts for others-or to keep for our house too!
You want to learn more about chocolate and be informed about just where your chocolate comes from. But you would like to have some fun too. We have a package for you.
Join us in early May 2013 for an exciting chocolate tour with some conventional sightseeing and activities as well. We will visit Ecuador’s famous Mitad Del Mundo Site on the equator and Quito’s colonial city, a UN World Heritage Site. We will also visit a cooperative of indigenous cacao growers and learn about making chocolate from farm to bar. See the collection center, fermentation process, and learn about how your chocolate gets all the way from some of the world’s most remote places to your store shelf. While in the Amazon, weÂ´ll also spend a day river rafting, with plenty of time to also enjoy the jungle lodge.
Visit a chocolate factory where we will learn how beans are processed into some of the world’s best chocolate. Finally, enjoy a chocolate tasting at our workshop in Quito and discover the nuanced flavors resulting from fermentation, roasting, and conching of your chocolate.
