The People's University: From Bean to Bar: The Exploration of Chocolate

Saturday, September 6, 2014 | Other Dates  
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

The production of chocolate is a complex melding of art and science, with a heritage that stretches back nearly 4,000 years to the lands and the early people of South and Meso America. This seminar, presented by renowned chocolate expert John Canter, explores the mythology, history, chemistry, biology, genomics, terroir and manufacture of chocolate, tracing its development through the centuries and its physical transformation from flowering tropical cacao tree to consumable chocolate product. The lecture includes a sampling of exotic and unfamiliar chocolates of varying genomes, locales, content and intensity, covering the spectrum from light milk chocolate to the darkest and most intense pure cacao offerings. Registration is required as supplies are limited.
