In Colonial times, Chocolate was not as common as it is today. It was used as a beverage made with water. It often contained spices and might even include chilies in the mixture.
On Saturday, May 12, Susan McLellan Plaisted, a respected and well known food historian, will be at the Moland House to demonstrate how a chocolate beverage was prepared and provide small samples for everyone to try. If you like chocolate, this is a chance to learn its history, where it comes from, how it goes from beans to chocolate as we recognize it, who found it first and how we all came to know of it. It is a fascinating subject, and we are bringing you a real expert. She loves to answer questions. We will also have some modern versions of chocolate to try. Come join us and share our love of chocolate!
