Join Taza Chocolate and Appleton Farms as we lead you through the journey from cacao bean to delicious chocolate bar. Suhayl Ramirez, Events and Outreach Coordinator for Taza Chocolate, will start your journey at the Mayan and Aztec origins of Theobroma Cacao and bring you right to the American craft chocolate being ground by stone right in Somerville, Massachusetts. All the while, participants will learn about and taste many different facets of chocolate, from the bean to the bar to the brunch! To complete the experience Chef Jennifer Knight will demo the ultimate chocolate croissant to pair perfectly with a traditional taza de chocolate (sumptuous Mexican hot chocolate) that participants will help prepare!
