Brought to you by the Embassy of Ecuador, Pacari is a celebrated brand from Quito, Ecuador that has accumulated over 180 awards globally, and ranks among the finest chocolatiers in the world. Their premium organic dark chocolate is produced using a tree-to-bar process, capturing most of the natural flavours; in fact, Pacari is ‘nature’ in Quechuan. While the soy-free, gluten-free and chemical-free chocolate is heaven in the mouth, its manufacturing prioritises the health of both farmland and consumer.
If you’re after something more savoury, there are exotic flavours here to tempt your taste buds as well. Make sure to try the iconic ceviche, a seafood dish made from raw fish marinated in citrus juices and spiced with chili peppers.
Quinoa has long been known for its super food qualities, packing 10 essential amino acids. Little wonder the Inca’s considered it the chisaya mama or ‘mother grain’. Pick up some of this delicious crop at the Ecuador booth!
And if you’re wanting something lighter, ‘chifles’ – green fried plantains – are the healthy, organic snack of choice. Wash it down with a cup of fresh Sangay tea and you’ll be right as rain.
