And narrated by Joanne Shurvell and Sophie Lagesse

Last March, the award-winning Belgian pâtissier/chocolatier Pierre Marcolini and a small crew of journalists immersed in the enchanting world of SAHANALA vanilla plantations and factories in Madagascar.
Forbes magazine journalist Joanne Shurvell stated they were all not only deeply affected by the incredible warmth and hospitality of the Malagasy people but surprised by what they learned about the wide variety, tastes and scents of vanilla.
Sophie Lagesse of SOIRMAG magazine focuses on the annual trips made by Pierre Marcolini. For him, these journeys represent the very essence of his profession since his creativity to make the best chocolates comes from these journeys.
