As if we needed any more reasons to love DOVE┬« Chocolate, which invited us to experience the journey of chocolate, from “bean to bar.”

Through a wonderful dinner prepared by fellow African and Food Network’s chef Morou Ouattara, we enjoyed four courses of absolute deliciousness featuring Chef Morou’s recipes prepared with DOVE┬« Chocolate. We also learned how DOVE┬« Chocolate has partnered with CARE, the nonprofit organization fighting poverty and empowering women to be leaders globally.

The evening started with cocktails, chocolate fondue and lessons on how beans are harvested for DOVE® Chocolate.

We were then treated to a rousing performance by New York’s Cumbe Dance Group.

It was onto the meal. First course was family style with fired plantain, back-eyed pea fritters and lamb chops.

During dinner we watched a video series, “Bean to Bar Journey,” which unveils the bean to bar journey through the eyes of Ivorian-born Chef Morou, who is executive chef and owner of Kora Restaurant in Crystal City, Va.┬á Check out the first three video series below. Happily this video series will continue in 2017 as Chef Morou travels to Cote d’Ivoire to learn how DOVE┬« Chocolate ensures responsible sourcing for cocoa beans. He will interact directly with the farmers and witness first-hand how DOVE┬« Chocolate and CARE are working together to empower local communities.

“The Tale Behind the Taste”

“Roast: It’s all About the Bean”

“The Art of Process”
