History of Chocolate-Virtual Program
February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join the Liberty Public Library, virtually, on Thurs. Feb. 11th at 1:00 pm for a free virtual program featuring Historian Peter L. Rose who will discuss the history of chocolate.
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 in a virtual presentation 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. In addition, participants will be entered in a drawing for a free chocolate treats from Floyd & Bobo’s bakery in Liberty.
