For all you chocolate lovers out there, today's Cacao: The Story of Chocolate talk and tasting brings together ArtBites historian Maite Gomez-Rejón, USC food justice teacher Sarah Portnoy and bean-to-bar ChocoVivo baroness Patricia Tsai to plumb the delicious depths of cacao consciousness. You'll see how the history of cacao winds its way through its origins as a necessary aspect of ancient Mesoamerican societies to the Renaissance courts of Europe to that chalky brown garbage you throw away before you get halfway done eating it. Afterward, you'll experience a full complement of cacao beverages, wine pairings, chocolate-inspired desserts and artisanal chocolates.
