Revue Magazine February 2023
With the arrival of February comes Valentine’s Day (Día del Cariño). The day was first recognized as “The Feast of St. Valentine” in A.D. 269. Today, roses, greeting cards to loved ones and friends, and of course, chocolates are the traditional gifts.
The Photo Contest this month was “Friends & Lovers in Guatemala” and we received some excellent photography.
On the chocolate front, two writers bring us some great insight (and a tasty recipe) of this marvellous treat. In “Guatemala Chocolate, a Sweet Love Affair” Kerstin Sabene takes us through the origin and artisanal creation process. In “Family, Love and Guatemalan Chocolate” Chef Amalia Moreno-Damgaard talks of the way in which chocolate is such an integral part of Guatemala.
We ask all of you to Be Our Valentine.
