105: HistoryIntermediate • 2 hours
This class covers the history of chocolate: from when humans first started eating it as a fruit to the modern craft chocolate movement. And while this will involve a fair amount of lecture, we’ll also taste cacao fruit, use a metate to grind cacao for beverages like the Olmecs, Maya, and Aztecs likely used, and we’ll make a historic hot chocolate recipe from the 1600s. In addition, we will taste multiple examples of chocolate bars that reflect techniques and important events in chocolate history. If you’ve ever wondered how the process of chocolate making has developed and evolved, your questions will be answered here. Guests aged 10 or above are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
