Why Travel with Greg D’Alesandre & Traci Des Jardins

We don’t know anyone better to help us experience Colombia’s culture, cuisine and cacao than a chef like Traci Des Jardins and a chocolate “sourcerer” like Dandelion Chocolate's Greg D'Alesandre. Traci and Greg go together like dinner and dessert: she is San Francisco’s multi-award-winning ambassador of Latin soul food, he comes from Silicon Valley to spread chocolatey goodness like a tech-savvy Willy Wonka. These are two people who champion going to the source of ingredients and exploring a country for all it has to offer.

Greg D'Alesandre

Greg's lifelong passion for chocolate drew him to Dandelion Chocolate in San Francisco. As co-owner and chocolate “sourcerer,” Greg helps to source the highest-quality cacao on earth, to craft small batches of chocolate deliciousness highlighting the individual flavors of each bean. You like chocolate? This man knows chocolate.

Traci Des Jardins

The two-time James Beard Award winning chef loves exploration almost as much as she loves food. She’s an avid philanthropist and an awesome chef whose greatest source of pride is giving back to her community.
