Travel Journal in Bandol


I spent the week in the San Martin region of Peru, along the Amazon Forest visiting farmers & plantations. They grow some of the best cacao beans. I can’t wait to receive those gorgeous beans back in my factory and have you taste the chocolate.


It was so great to be home in Bandol. One of my favorite things is to go to the port everyday. The sunsets here are irresistible.


There are so many beautiful tomatoes to choose from at Bandol local markets. I bought many different kinds and they were all juicy and really delicious.


So fresh! Caught in the Mediterranean and sold in the local market on the ports.


Bandol has gorgeous views


Surfers in Bandol ride waves till sunset.


Anyone thirsty? Bundle is known for the best Rose, I wish there was a selection this big in the states!


I picked up a few pounds of fresh Mediterranean sardines to grill at home.


My favorite farmer, Philippe La Pergola Roda. Always the best fruits and vegetables.


In America we pump gas for our car, in Bandol we pump wine for our soul!
