Hockey and Chocolate: An Unusually Great Pair

Hockey and Chocolate: An Unusually Great Pair

When it comes to ice hockey and chocolate making, one might assume that these two pursuits are vastly different. However, upon closer examination, it becomes clear that the theme of precision, skill and passion runs through both of these crafts.

In ice hockey, players must master the precision and skill of skating and stickhandling to outmaneuver their opponents and score goals. Similarly, in chocolate making, chocolatiers must possess precision and skill in understanding the nuances of cocoa beans, roasting temperatures, and blending techniques to create the perfect chocolate.

But precision and skill alone do not lead to success in either hockey or chocolate making. Passion for the craft is what sets the greats apart. In hockey, it's the players who are passionate about the game who spend hours practicing, conditioning and studying their opponents to improve their skills. In chocolate making, it's the chocolatiers who are passionate about the craft who spend hours perfecting their recipes and techniques to create the perfect chocolate.

And this passion extends beyond the individual level, it's also reflected in the team aspect of both hockey and chocolate making. In hockey, it's the teams that work together seamlessly, with a shared passion for the game, that come out victorious. In chocolate making, it's the teams of skilled chocolatiers that collaborate, with a shared passion for the craft, to create exceptional chocolate.

Moreover, both hockey and chocolate making place a strong emphasis on ethics and fair-play. In hockey, players are expected to play within the rules and sportsmanship is highly valued. Similarly, in chocolate making, it is crucial to source cocoa beans ethically and sustainably, and to ensure that workers are treated fairly and paid a living wage.

In conclusion, the theme of precision, skill and passion runs through both ice hockey and chocolate making. And at Marsatta Chocolate, we strive to embody this theme in everything we do.
