CACAO FEST BRINGS 4000

all CELEBRATING

HAWAII GROWN CHOCOLATE!


Sunday was a beautiful day, and for 4000+ people it was a day of chocolate eating, learning, & celebrating! Hawaii is in a unique position, being the only US state with the climate to grow Cacao. This festival was created to celebrate this growing industry with the hope that enough support can be garnered that a chocolate processing facility can soon come into fruition on the islands.

Please plan to attend chocolate events throughout February – HAWAII CACAO MONTH – and taste the local goodness!

LAST WEEKEND AT THE MARKETS!

cacao fest 2011

The day began with an Oli and Pu by Moke, and continued with

Farm Tours to Waialua Estate Cacao Orchards, a recipe contest with our fabulous judges- Choclatier Melanie Boudar, Rep. Corinne Ching, Rep. Gil Riviere, and Councilman Ernie Martin, and had booths filled amazing growers and chocolate makers, and even had CTHAR on hand to show how to process chocolate in your own home!

2011 Cacao recipe winners
Big Mahalos to everyone who entered the

Chocolate Recipe Contest!


Our judges were in choco-heaven as they went from entry to entry reveling in the many taste sensations. Though it was a very, very difficult to decide the winners, they managed to somehow do it.
Several times I heard “They should all win! How can i choose?”
