American Terroir is a series of explorations of various foods, where and how they are produced in North and Central America. We start with maple syrup (in Vermont, of course) and end with chocolate (visiting Chiapas in Mexico and Somerville, Massachusetts, the home of Taza Chocolate that makes bean-to-bar chocolate). Each chapter introduces us to people and settings who care a great deal about the product and the environment in which it’s produced. To a person, they care about sustainability, the continuing ability to grow, raise, or harvest that food now and into the future. For them, it’s not just a desire to be green, it’s the foundation of a long term successful business model.
