Join Maite at the Skirball’s Hanukkah Festival: LA/LA!
Celebrate Hanukkah while discovering the history of chocolate, one of Mexico’s greatest gifts to the world. In special demonstrations throughout the day, learn about the history of the prized cocoa pod, from its origins as a drink for Mayan and Aztec nobility, to a drink for European aristocrats, to the simple chocolate bar, and the special Hanukkah gelt.
Come to the demonstrations or just drop by to decorate your very own gelt with edible paint and decorative foil!
