Just in Time for Valentine’s Day — Chocolate History (and tasting!) at Old Manassas Courthouse
On Saturday, February 9th, I’ll be doing another of my Chocolate History and Tasting programs. This will be the third time that I’ve partnered with the Prince William County Dept. of Public Works Historic Preservation Division to do one of these programs. The previous two programs have been at Rippon Lodge in Woodbridge, VA. Both sold out, so this time we’re having it at the Old Manassas Courthouse in Manassas, VA, which has two things going for it: more seating and heat!
In the approximately 1.5 hour program, I talk about cacao and chocolate production from it’s earliest known uses in Meso-America up to modern day. Along the way, we’ll taste several of the best artisan chocolate bars being made today from around the world (with a special emphasis on several of my favorite small American makers).
Afterwards, I’ll have plenty of Potomac Chocolate bars available for purchase just in time to make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift and I always end up hanging out for a while talking chocolate with anyone who has questions or just wants to know more–or just wants to taste more chocolate!
It’s always a lot of fun and I hope to see you there!
