DIY: How to Make Chocolate

By Lena Hanson, CGNE communications manager

Learn all about how chocolate is made with Taza Chocolate and the Culinary Guild of New England. Plus, tweet us for a chance to win a sampler of delicious Mexican-style chocolate. Details below.

Chocolate. You love it, you eat it, you give it as gifts…but do you know how it’s made? Why is one chocolate smooth while other is crumbly? Why is some more mild and some more acidic?

On Thursday, November 1 at 5:30pm, we will be touring the Taza Chocolate factory in Somerville, MA to learn more about chocolate and how it’s made. We’ll learn about Taza as a business as well as what makes their Mexican-style chocolate so different and special. And, not to be forgotten, we’ll taste samples of their chocolates and a special Mexian-style hot chocolate.

Don’t miss this great event!

Want to win your own Taza Chocolate Sampler? Here’s how:

1 entry per person. Tweets must be completed by 5:00p.m. on Sunday, 10/21/2012 for a chance to win. 1 person will be chosen at random as a winner of a Taza Chocolate Mexicano Sampler worth $20 and containing eight 1.5oz Chocolate Mexicano discs, one each of Cacao Puro, Chipotle Chili, Cinnamon,Ginger, Guajillo Chili, Orange, Salt & Pepper, and Vanilla Bean.
