Have you ever wondered how the chocolate that you enjoy today was created? We are going to take a journey through time we will “learn history, as we taste history.” David Borhesani, the exclusive chocolate historian for Mars, Incorporated, will explain the evolution of chocolate making, starting over 3,500 years ago bringing guests all the way up to the 21st century. We will discuss innovations, machinery, and modern chocolate making techniques that led to the wonderful and delicious confections that you enjoy today. You will have the opportunity to taste 5 delicious pieces of chocolate, while you learn about how technology gave chocolate makers the ability to create them.
Plan a pre-Valentines at-home date night with chocolate tasting! Kits will include all the samples you need for this interactive tasting, a bottle of wine, and a surprise or two. Kits will need to be picked up from the Rhode Island Historical Society headquarters at 110 Benevolent Street in Providence on February 8, 9, or 10 between 1 and 4pm. You must be 21+ to pick up a kit. If these times are inconvenient for you, or you would prefer a non-alcoholic option, please call Elizabeth Wood at (401) 331-8575 x135 and we are happy to make other arrangements.
