Here in Italy at Easter time, the shop windows fill with elaborately designed chocolate eggs. There are eggs as large as 1 ft tall, and most are hollow with a beautifully wrapped gift inside, including toys for children, and fun things for adults too (sunglasses, jewelry, collectibles.)
Ahhh, but here in Arezzo, we have our very own Vestri Cioccolato--an artisanal chocolate producer who grows their own cocoa at their plantation, Santo Domingo. When you visit Arezzo at Easter, I will take you to Vestri Cioccolato, where you can bring your own gift and have a custom egg made.
It’s one thing to “know” someone, it’s another thing entirely to invest time to learn about that someone’s family, their health, their interests. It takes time and effort to form a relationship – to show you really care.
