12 Days of Wellness: Day One (Taza Chocolate)

For years we wanted to improve our packaging and produce a bar in a resealable bag, so you could break off a hunk of chocolate, close up the package up without getting chocolate all over your bag or car. And I wanted to make chocolate that was indulgent like milk chocolate without dairy. We made all of that happen with the introduction of our new Almond Milk Chocolate bars!

Getting Down and Dirty About Food at Holly Hill Farm

Many of us on the South Shore have heard of Holly Hill Farm, the only certified organic farm in these parts, and hopefully visited the farm stand or purchased the farm’s delicious produce at the Cohasset and Scituate Farmers Markets.

On a $50 budget, they produced their first show, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, in a church basement in Weymouth.

Doing Good Never Tasted So Delicious:
Irene Li and Mei Mei restaurant

It's hard not to get excited (and hungry) when you listen to Irene Li talk about Mei Mei, the restaurant she co-owns with her brother Andrew and her sister, Margaret. I got a real “joy hit” as she explained the siblings’ commitment to using sustainable, locally-sourced food and treating employees fairly. Irene was generous to talk with me some more about how she and her sibs are changing the way Bostonians think about the food we eat and who is making it.
