Food of the Gods: Chocolate Making & Raw Cacao Workshop

Tuesday | February 12, 2019 | 6:30 pm — 8:30 pm

Chocolate can be seen as a symbol of love and sensuality. Learn how to make your own handmade chocolate, whether it be to show love to yourself, family, loved ones, or romantic partners!

You will create and taste delicious, raw, organic chocolate in several forms: fresh cacao beans, chocolate bars, and cacao paste. We will also explore cacao’s rich history, learn about its medicinal and ceremonial uses and trace its journey from the pre-colonial Mayan context to its current form as a luxury good in Western culture.

Each participant will take home some handmade chocolate, truffles, and hot chocolate elixir, and receive printed recipes and suggested sources of direct trade cacao from cooperatives, so that you can make your own at home.

This workshop has limited spaces available and always sells out, so please register in advance to make sure you can come!

Accessibility Notes: This workshop will be held in the ADA accessible Koret Community Kitchen. There are accessible parking spots in the parking lot, however please leave time to find street parking if needed, as the lot fills up quickly. FM receivers are available for those hard of hearing.
