Chocolate Is The Ultimate Love Language To Bring People Together

 

Chocolate is such a beautiful metaphor for life as each chocolate maker is able to express themselves in the chocolate they create. 

 

A craft chocolate bar is like a person, unique and special. Sometimes, it takes time to savor a particular bar of chocolate to appreciate its finer points. The same philosophy can be applied to people. It takes special and unique opportunities to connect individuals.

 

Chocolate is the perfect medium to do that, as the research shows that 9 out of 10 people like chocolate. There is nothing out there that brings people together like chocolate!

 

I know how important relationships are to you. Relationships are what make life both meaningful and enjoyable. They prevent us from experiencing a sense of isolation, purposelessness, and hopelessness. So let's use chocolate to build meaningful relationships!

I am Chocolate and Relationship Expert, Dr. Kalei Ross. Chocolate is essential to my family as it provides numerous fun opportunities to bond. My husband and I enjoy sampling chocolate and sharing our experiences with one another. Although our experience of the chocolates may differ at times, that is what makes our discussions all the more lively and entertaining! Our daughter, while only a toddler, actively participates in the activity of chocolate sampling and always looks forward to it. Our family is living proof that chocolate brings people together!

 

I would love to share with you the very same chocolate connection experiences that my family enjoys so that you can experience greater joy in life through transforming your relationships. 

Your Chocolate Adventure Starts NOW!

Join me as I go on an international chocolate adventure! I will search the globe in my pursuit of the purest chocolate, preferably 100% cacao. I hope to change your perception of extremely dark chocolate from being the horrible bitter chocolate you've seen in the baking aisle, to recognizing it as a delectable substance that is complex, full of flavor, and compliments different foods, drinks, and beautiful moments in life. This is in addition to all the amazing health benefits that we are learning more about each day. 

 

In addition to learning about and reviewing different chocolates, come along as I meet different people in the chocolate industry, from cacao farmers, chocolate makers, chocolatiers,  import/exporters, and other authors. You will find that chocolate cultivates creativity and brings people together!

 

Just as I want my daughter to THINK (Is it T =True?, H = Helpful?, I = Inspiring?, N = Necessary?, K = Kind?) before she speaks, I want this to be a place where kindness and thoughtfulness are exercised. There is enough negativity in this world. Thus, it is my policy to only post content that will encourage and inspire people. 

 

Let’s go on an adventure and experience the joy of chocolate together!

about

Greetings chocolate fans! I am Dr. Kalei Ross. I have my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology and have practiced in the field for years. However, my real blessing in life is being a wife, mother, and dedicated servant of the Lord. I enjoy indulging in all things chocolate, from researching to sampling and especially savoring. 

 

I have spent the past few years learning as much as I can about all facets of chocolate and the craft chocolate world. In doing such, I have found a way to combine my experience and training in Clinical Psychology and my love and expertise in chocolate to offer unique "chocolate interpersonal experiences" designed to provide practical tools to connect and enhance communication in relationships from the boardroom to the bedroom. 

 

In my book "In Pursuit of Purity, The Paris Chocolate Files" (which I wrote for my daughter) I have chronicled my Parisian chocolate adventures. It won the coveted international Gourmand Award in the Chocolate category, making it the only book from the USA to win this distinction in 2020. I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to embark on your own chocolate adventure! 

In Pursuit of Purity,

The Paris Chocolate Files

A Journey to Discover the History

and Secrets Behind the Purest

Chocolate in Paris

Kalei, in love with chocolate before she could even walk, was shocked one day to learn of her allergies to this childhood indulgence. Heartbroken and suffering for years without, she came across research that changed her life: she was allergic to the added ingredients in the chocolate, not the cocoa itself.

 

And so began a life journey to seek out chocolate purified of excess elements save that which preserved its flavor and pleased the palate. What better place to rekindle this love affair than the City of Light?

 

Take a tour through some of the world’s most famous chocolate shops and discover chocolatiers who have spent generations mastering the art of chocolate. Learn the secrets and history behind each one as Kalei guides you across Paris In Pursuit of Purity.
