Chocolate: History and Heritage

Thursday 12/7 at 7:00pm 

La Plaza de Cultura y Artes

Join me for this annual chocolate event!

Chocolate is perhaps one of the most intriguing foods in history, prized for thousands of years and now a global passion. Celebrate the holidays by tracing the origin of chocolate, the food of the gods, from a drink reserved for Mayan and Aztec nobility, to a drink for European aristocrats, to the simple chocolate bar. Then enjoy a tasting of Mexican hot chocolate, champurrado, and traditional pan dulce from La Monarca Bakery.

This class does not include a tour, it is an informal lecture followed by a tasting.
