Chocolate – Food of the Gods

Chocolate has been part of the world culture for thousands of years. This talk will present:(1) the high points of the history of chocolate from the Mayan and Aztec cultures to the present; (2) some chemistry and biochemistry of the obroma cocoa (the food of the gods;(3) some health results that indicate this exotic vegetable (obviously since wine is a fruit) is actually good for you;(4) some circulating urban legends(little known facts, trivia) about chocolate; (5) discussions about the recent book "The Emperors of Chocolate"; and (6) samples sufficient to make some attendees sick. Some of us are not ashamed to admit to being card carrying chocoholics and on a 12-step plan.

There is no charge for attending just the talk.
