“Food of the Gods”
Cacao (not to be confused with cocoa) has been a staple in Mesoamerican diets as early as 1900 BC. Cacao beans, which are actually seeds harvest from the fruit of the cacao tree, have a variety of medicinal, ceremonial, and culinary uses.
The health benefits and beloved flavours of the cacao tree are so fantastic, it was given the greek scientific name Theobroma cacao or “Food of the Gods” (theos meaning “god”, broma meaning “food”).
“Chocolate is a devine, celestial drink, the sweat of the stars, divine nectar, the drink of the gods, panacea and universal medicine” – Geronimo Piperni, 1796
