*Chocolate – Talk and Tastings
Please note this event has been postponed to later in the year due to current Covid-19 restrictions, all current tickets holders will be valid for the re-scheduled date.
Find out lots more about the cocoa bean

That dark, pleasantly bitter, chemically complex substance we know of as chocolate, bears little resemblance to the pulp surrounded seeds of the cocoa plant from which it is produced.

Join Vilma Bharatan to explore the history, its botany and processes involved in its transformation to become either the food of the masses or of the Gods. This distinction depends not only on the beans used and which varietal group it belongs to, but the whole process used to produce these guilty pleasures!

Besides working at the Natural History Museum, Vilma is also a homeopath and research co-ordinator for 4 GP practices and yes, there will be chocolate tastings.
