Francine Segan is our guide through the history of chocolate, from its New World origins and journey to Europe to its transformation over the years from a grainy, bitter brew into the treat we know and love today. Learn about the roles Columbus and Casanova played, how decadent 17th-century European high society experienced chocolate, and how Hershey’s got started in chocolate. Experience a guided tasting of fine chocolates as Segan talks about how candy is made today. The program ends with a reception of delectable chocolate and wine pairings. Book signing will follow the program.
