Episode 8: I Melt with You
We wrap up by asking the question at the heart of the whole season: What is it about this stuff that makes people so obsessed? What drives them to such lengths? And how can we get our hands on some of that? We chat with our crew of characters to understand what chocolate means to them and how preserving these exotic strands could actually save the rain forest. We dip our toes into the new world of ritual cacao, visit some god-level chocolate makers to see just how far the Art of Chocolate can go, and even get our hands dirty making some of our own. In the end, we rediscover what the Maya always knew: This is sacred stuff.
