Journey through time to discover the origin and evolution of chocolate! With samples provided by La Nef Chocolate and insight from cultural historian Maya Rook of Illusory Time, we'll taste our way from Ancient Mesoamerica all the way up to the present.
Join us on Friday, May 20th, from 6-7 pm, at Bath Dance Works (72 Front Street) in Bath, ME, for this delectable exploration of how our consumption of chocolate has developed over thousands of years.
La Nef Chocolate was founded on Monhegan Island, Maine by Mandy and Dylan Metrano in the summer of 2018. Both are artists and came to chocolatiering wanting to unite many creative interests into a business that could sustain them both creatively and financially, year-round. La Nef is committed to conservation, sustainability and community building. They use biodegradable and recyclable packaging, source high quality ingredients, and deal in direct trade for fair treatment of farmers. La Nef supports artists and non-profits that are doing work that they believe in through partnerships and collaborations.
