Event description

Description

We don’t have to look far beyond our plate to see connections to history, culture, and mythology through everyday foods. The Storytelling and Cultural Expressions In Food workshop series is designed to use a particular food ingredient to explore these themes, and in the process to build cultural appreciation, deepen familiarity with world geography, and expand historical understandings.

This is the 4th and final workshop in the series and it is designed to explore chocolate in storytelling and cultural expressions throughout the world and history. And of course the meal that we will prepare will feature as many different opportunities to honour and taste the delights of chocolate as possible!

We will begin with a look into how chocolate, like so many yummy foods, originally came from Central and South America dating back to 1900 BCE. The Aztecs believed that cacao seeds were the gift of Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom, and the seeds once had so much value that they were used as a form of currency.

These workshops are designed to be 3 hours, with the capacity to include up to 10 learners and to accommodate the unique gifts and challenges that each participant brings. Please do let me know if specific accommodations are helpful so that I can prepare appropriately.
