Tom's Podcast # 39: Five Days at the Salon du Chocolat in Paris
Show Notes

As promised,  this podcast is about my trip to Paris, where I spent 5 days in the Ivoirian CCC (Conseil du Café Cacao) booth with David Logbo Zigro talking about our joint project to establish village-based chocolate making.

I begin the project with a lovely Ivoirian song to which people were dancing a sort of napkin dance (waving napkins in the air).  Then I talk about the history of the bean-to-bar movement and then about SOCOPLAN, the cooperative that David and I founded.  I also talk about the French non-profit, Projet Espoir et Equité which I founded in order to sell village-made chocolates.

Thursday, December 1 marks our umpteenth fundraiser!  It's going to be more exciting than ever.  Check out the details at:  projecthopeandfairness.org.  To reserve tickets, just go to the website and click on the donate button.  The first donate button is for reserving tickets.  Your name will be recorded and put on a list.  When you arrive at the front door, we will know that you have donated.

See you there!  Tom Neuhaus
