Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
 The Hudson Valley’s trading and manufacturing history of what is now our favorite confection, but started as an invigorating and nourishing drink, will be discussed by Culinary Historian Peter G. Rose. She will describe the early trade by the Valley’s Dutch settlers in the 17th century and the subsequent manufacturing developments of chocolate through the 18th century into the late 19th century. She will end with some useful facts on working with today’s chocolate. A recipe sheet will be available as a hand-out.

As a special treat, we will have some chocolate available for attendees! Ms. Rose will also have copies of her books for sale.
