Sept. 2017 - Bread Wine and Chocolate

9/13/17 #AgBookClub Recap

Miss the #AgBookClub chat this week? No worries, we’ve compiled a summary of the chat to prepare you for next week!

Week 2 of Bread, Wine and Chocolate covered pages 83 – 134, which was all about chocolate and cacao production. Below are several responses that we thought summed up the chat well, covered themes, or contained thought-provoking questions or comments (limited to 140 characters, of course).

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section of this post or on Twitter (clicking the date at the bottom of each tweet will take you directly to that tweet on Twitter’s website). You can see the full conversation by searching “#AgBookClub” on Twitter.
