What better way to start the Valentine's Day holiday than with a program on chocolate. The aroma of chocolate wafts in the air as this presentation connects the cultural use of chocolate from Meso-America to Europe and back to colonial America and Pennsylvania. Learn the basics of cacao cultivation, harvesting, and fermentation. Examine Mayan, Aztec, and European artifacts to compare and contrast chocolate in different societies and explore the place of chocolate in Pennsylvania. Participants have the opportunity to grate "chocolate cakes" and make and sample an historic chocolate beverage. Light refreshments will be served.

The program is presented by Susan McLellan Plaisted, a food researcher and historian, as well as, a board certified pediatric dietitian with a Master's Degree in Health Education.
