Discover the history of chocolate with Maite at Hauser & Wirth in DTLA. Learn all about the journey of the prized cacao pod – from its origins as a drink for Mayan and Aztec nobility, to a drink for European aristocrats, to the present day candy bar, to its usage in contemporary art.
After the talk, participate in a tasting of Milla Chocolates and traditional Mexican cacao based drinks accompanied by Manuela’s Grist & Toll whole grain churritos. ($20)
Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Artisseur’s original Richard Dorman FAIA mid-century residence with Maite as she traces the rise of entertaining in 1950’s America, and how modern architecture, furniture and objects played a role in home cocktail parties. Prepare hors d’oeuvres and libations that would have made Frank, Dean and Sammy proud, then enjoy the party on the spectacular deck overlooking the city to tunes by old blue eyes.
