Learn about the history of chocolate from its ancient beginnings in Meso-America through the centuries to the modern day. This interactive presentation will focus on how chocolate has changed through time both in terms of its cultural value and how mechanization has altered its production process over time. The presentation will be followed by a tasting of hot chocolate the Aztec way, an 18th century-style chocolate tart, a 19th century-style chocolate pudding, the 20th century chocolate bar, and the latest 21st century chocolate incarnation, with sea salt!

 






A Chocolate Pot with a Mill inserted in the center of the top, used to mill or whisk the chocolate to raise a frothy foam.
