Chocolate -- The Ancient to Modern Delectable Confection

Join us as Dorie Owen leads us in a grand tour of “chocolate”— its history and lore, the different kinds of chocolate, where they come from, how they are made, some scientific tidbits plus some other little-known facts about chocolate. For instance did you know that the taste that most people associate with Chocolate springs primarily from the vanilla and other spices mixed with the chocolate? And what about white chocolate—it is the chocolate that isn’t!

Learn to savor the variety of tastes as we sample different chocolates ranging from the familiar Hershey to the exotic dark chocolates including Lindt from Switzerland, Ocumare from Spain, Valrhona from France, Scharffen Berger from San Francisco and more. Vote for your favorite as we collectively pick the best from the samples. Afterwards enjoy a social time with light hors d’oeuvres.
