Mercado do Cacau. Santo Domingo

Felipe Daiello

Herança dos astecas e dos maias, bem, antes da conquista das Américas pelos espanhóis era considerado como dádiva dos Deuses, sendo usado nas cerimônias religiosas. Servia também como padrão monetário, sendo empregado como moeda na aquisição dos bens do diário, para pagamento de salário dos trabalhadores e quitação de taxas e impostos. As sementes do cacau possuíam tabela de conversão. Para compra de um tomate uma unidade bastava, para compra de um abacate ou de um ovo três grãos era preciso, um coelho pequeno valia 30. A paga diária de um trabalhador requeria 100 grãos e a compra de um pavão necessitava do dobro deste valor, 200 sementes.

Sem ter a importância do Brasil e de Gana, maiores produtores mundiais, a República Dominicana investe na produção do cacau ecológico, obtendo assim melhor preço para o seu produto.

Na parte antiga de Santo Domingo, a capital da República Dominicana, fundada em 1496, podemos apreciar a iguaria local. Lojas especializadas, fábricas artesanais apresentam exposições de todo o processo produtivo Para os turistas degustações grátis estão disponíveis, bem antes de passar na saída para o setor de vendas. É difícil escapar do cerco.

Basicamente são três as possibilidades apresentadas. O chocolate forte, escuro, amargo tem 70% de cacau , o intermediário é fabricado com 50% e o tipo mais leve apresenta 40% de cacau. No Brasil temos maiores e melhores combinações. O preço aqui é mais elevado.

Nova alternativa surge nos chás com base no cacau, tentam criar e ocupar espaço gastronômico no universo das tentações para novos consumidores. Novidade que não empolgou.

Na parte antiga de Santo Domingo, dentro das antigas muralhas, um dos melhores conjuntos coloniais da América Espanhola, é preciso caminhar com calma para sentir as emoções de passado histórico e para perceber os aromas e os sabores da ilha considerada como o Paraíso na Terra por Colombo. Os tainos, os primeiros ocupantes, na sua linguagem usavam expressão com o mesmo significado.

-Quisquaya! – A Terra de todas as Terras.

O cheiro do frango picado e frito, depois de coberto de farinha, o popular “Pica-Pollo”, surge nas esquinas,é companheiro da “catíbias”, pastéis feitos com farinha do aipim que depois de fritos, nos tentam com massa crocante. No Centro Cultural Local de Gastronomia, maravilhas da comida típica do país são as próximas tentações. Vamos tentar o “Puerco em puyia ?”

No Passeo de las Damas, primeira via pavimentada da cidade, perto do Forte Osama, as acompanhantes de Maria de Toledo , esposa de Diego de Colon, primeiro vice-rei das Índias e filho de Cristovão Colombo, desfilavam. Nos finais da tarde, calor amenizado pelas brisas, o luxo, as roupas e o bom gosto da Corte Espanhola encantavam a população. As damas procuravam admiradores e namorados entre os oficiais da fortaleza. Muitas famílias tradicionais da República Dominicana tiveram aqui as suas raízes.

Bem perto, casa tradicional, centenária, abriga outro Museu do Cacau, outra oportunidade de conhecer melhor todos os produtos que os Deuses locais nos deixaram como nosso patrimônio.

-Prefiro o amargo.- já ensaie as palavras na escolha das amostras, antes de provar os licores ofertados.

    Please do keep up the fantastic work.

  25. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  26. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s

  34. I was wonderingcurious if you ever consideredthought of changing the layoutpage layoutstructure of your blogsitewebsite? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one1 or two2 imagespictures.

  39. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  43. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  46. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  47. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  51. I want to know if I should do a trademark or copyright for the following…. . This pseudonym is used too make music (band) photography, writing and website. . . I want to own the name and also protect the work under it, what is the best way of doing this? Do I have to keep copyrighting individual pieces?.

  52. That is very attention-grabbing, You’re an overly professional blogger.
    I have joined your feed and sit up for in the hunt for extra of your
    wonderful post. Also, I have shared your web site
    in my social networks

  53. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    visual appearance. I must say you have done a amazing job with this.

    Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

  54. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  57. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  58. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  59. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  72. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  82. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  83. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  84. Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    Just wanted to say keep up the good job!

  89. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  90. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard.

  92. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  97. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  138. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  165. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  166. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  167. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  168. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  169. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  170. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  178. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  184. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
