Calling all chocolate lovers: The community is invited to join Congregational Church of La Jolla’s Director of Music and Professional Chocolate Expert Nina Gilbert as she unwraps the magic of chocolate through an exploration of its connections to art, history, science, politics, economics, and even military science.
Congregational Church of La Jolla’s Fellowship Hall will provide an elegant backdrop for Gilbert’s lecture, “Chocolate Connection — Exploring Chocolate Through the Ages and Around the World.” Timed to coincide with beginning of the holiday season, Gilbert’s interactive, palette-pleasing presentation will take place Saturday, Nov. 11, at 3:30 p.m. Congregational Church of La Jolla is located at 1216 Cave St., in the heart of the village of La Jolla.
”Chocolate is a lot like wine or coffee, with hundreds of flavor compounds,” Gilbert explained. “Guests will be treated to an informative, high-energy presentation, while savoring samples of varietal bittersweets and high-cacao milk chocolates sourced from around the world. Together, we’ll learn why chocolate has fascinated people for centuries, and explore its wine-related terms like ‘vintage’ and ‘terroir.’
Guests will be invited to make a free-will offering for their participation in the Chocolate Connection experience. Space is limited! Guests are asked to call the church office to reserve their seats — (858) 459-5045.
