Chocolate – A History and Tasting at Rippon Lodge 7/28
For those who missed it last time, I’m going to be doing another chocolate history and tasting class at the historic Rippon Lodge here in Woodbridge on July 28th. I’ll be talking about the history of cacao and chocolate from before the Olmecs to the modern day. I’ll also discuss how chocolate has been made throughout that time, including how I make it now.
Obviously, far more interesting than listening to me blather on is that we’ll also be tasting several varieties of fine, bean-to-bar chocolate. In addition to Potomac Chocolate, we’ll taste a variety of chocolates that showcase different makers’ techniques and styles, as well as showing the differences in flavor between different bean origins.
It’s going to be a lot of fun–hope to see you there!

Rippon Lodge handles all of the reservations, but I learned a little while ago that they are sold out. They have started a wait list, though, in case anyone backs out.
