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.
