Event Description

Treat your dad, your buddy or your partner to an afternoon of chocolate and beer. You will learn about the many varieties of cocoa beans and chocolate, how the Aztec and Maya discovered chocolate, and how to make your own chocolate bars from the bean. Learn all of this with ethnobotanist Nat Bletter, who has studied and made chocolate for over 5 years and regularly sells out of every bar he makes.

In the class everyone will participate in making delicious chocolate bars from scratch after a short talk on the history of chocolate with some tastings, and you’ll go home with recipes and a bar of chocolate.

Jimmy Carbone, owner of Jimmy’s 43, fine beer aficionado and originator of the Good Beer Seal of Approval will pair Nat’s homemade chocolate with a selection of artisanal beers.

Proceeds will go towards Slow Food NYC’s Harvest Time in Schools Program

Please Note: You can RSVP here but you still must purchase a ticket by going to Brown Paper Tickets at the link above. RSVPing here DOES NOT reserve you a place at the event.

I'll be there as Nat's assistant. Looking forward to meeting Members and beer lovers.
