Bars, truffles, cakes, pastries, and more – humans have always had a love affair with chocolate. And nature and technology have made it so that we love it. But chocolate hasn't always stayed the same.
This lecture, presented by freelance food and travel writer and self-proclaimed food nerd, Vanessa Chang, explores the different uses of cacao by culture and era, ranging from Ancient Mesoamerican civilization to modern day use by looking at the science behind cacao, cocoa butter, and cultural tastes.
Lecture includes three tastings of chocolate recipes throughout the ages.
