Presented by A Taste of History with Joyce White
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO! Prepare for the whirlwind experience that is the annual Annapolis Chocolate Binge Festival at this informative, tasty, and interactive program.
Maryland was one of the only colonies south of the Mason-Dixon line to be home to a chocolate maker in the 18th century. Attend this program to find out where he worked and more interesting chocolate facts to make you a true chocolate connoisseur. Participants will get hands-on when they grind cacao nibs into chocolate the way it would have been done in the 18th century. Different types of cacao and the history of chocolate processing from the pre-industrial days to the modern-day will also be explored, and, at each step in the process, different types of chocolates will be sampled to make this scrumptious chocolate journey complete.
