“Chocolate – Food of the Gods”
Chocolate has been a part of our New World culture for thousands of years. In this presentation, some of the history, aspects of its production, health aspects, and the chemistry of its active ingredient; theobroma cocoa (literally from the Greek - Food of the Gods) will be discussed.
In addition, all who attend will receive samples of chocolate, and for those who stay to the “bitter” end, there will be a drawing for a free 10 pound bar of “bittersweet” chocolate.
