interview on CBC radio

Hi folks:

I was interviewed on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) on July 26 on the Morning Show with Marcy Markusa. So many people e-mailed me to say they enjoyed the interview that I thought I’d post it here for all to enjoy. It is 6 minutes of pure passion as I talk about my chocolate discoveries and research for Chocolatour through 12 countries around the world.

    Just rec’d this lovely comment from Joyce Slobogian of Brandon, MB and am sharing with her permission:
    “Hi Doreen, read your beautifully written book with great interess. I’m a chocolate lover from way back and reading about all these chocolate places had me drooling. I lived in Zurich for a number of years in my youth and I remember that a group of us got together once a month at the Cafe Spruengli. It was a pleasant and lipsmacking Koffeeklatsch! Reading your book brought back those memories. Congratulations, Doreen, on a well-rounded project! Hope you sell tons of books. Ciao, Joyce”

    Great interview. You are right, I have not heard of anyone writing much about chocolate travel. Chocolate made in different countries is very fascinating. Didn’t know that Peruvian chocolate has nutty taste.

      Thanks for comment, Shalu.

      Peruvian chocolate actually has more of a fruity taste, vs a nutty one. It is Ecuadorian chocolate that is often described as being more nutty. Both are good, but I generally prefer the Peruvian. Preference is definitely a very individual thing, and determined by your own taste buds and a few other factors such as what else you may have eaten or drank that particular day.

  7. What a brilliant interview. You are a dream guest for an interviewer, engaging, interesting stories, informative, great voice, enthusiasm. Well done!

  10. Wow, Doreen. I think I listened to this before but it was so good to hear it again. Your passion for the growers and the makers, and the travels really shines!
    Good for you for getting your Diversions website mentioned in there too! It’s so true that “chocolate” is a universal language, because of its many benefits!
    Good for you for being such a great ambassador and bringing this to us!
