Event description

Description

Enjoying chocolate is also an expedition into history. Culinary historian Joyce White will explore the rich cultural history of chocolate from its ancient beginnings in Mesoamerica to the present day, with particular emphasis on how it was enjoyed by America’s founding fathers and mothers. Thomas Jefferson was a chocolate fan, as were John and Abigail Adams and George and Martha Washington. Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton suggested a 5-cent tariff on chocolate imports seeing how popular the tasty luxury was among Americans.

Participants will enjoy hot chocolate during the talk, receive take-home samples of five historical chocolate recipes, and have the opportunity to tour Homewood Museum and see its special exhibition Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America.

Limited to 20, and pre-paid advance registration is required.

Registration opens December 15, 2017 for JHU Museums Members and JHU faculty, staff, and students. Not a Member? Join today and receive a year of benefits at Homewood Museum and Evergreen Museum & Library.

General public registration opens January 15, 2018.
