I just opened the latest issue of Gourmet and was greeted with an article all about Marisel Presilla! I got to show her picture to my husband and say "There is the woman who lent me her pashmina so I could wear it as a skirt and get into the 21 club". What a fun night.
I hope all is well with you and yours!
Where did you visit plantations? How cool is that...to see the origin of all choc in its rawest form. Did you taste the pulp? I was lucky enough to meet a 3 generations cacao famly running a plantation in Mexico- forver affected my view of the choc i eat every day.
