Platica y Prueba: The History of Chocolate
ADULT 18+ ONLY
Vaccination Card Required Upon Entry
Celebrate the holidays by exploring the history of chocolate, tracing its origins from the ingredient being a food for the ancient gods, to the modern chocolate bar. Once seen as a nobility for the Aztec and Mayans, and later European aristocrats, you’ll learn how chocolate has been able to transform for all to consume and enjoy!
In this class, attendees will get the chance to enjoy a tasting of chocolate de agua and try tejate, a non-alcoholic flower beverage made of ground corn, ground cacao, mamey seeds and rosita de cacao.
Guest Speaker: Chef and Historian, Maite Gomez-Rejón, founder of ArtBites and a guest tejate maker.
