An Evening Of Chocolate Returns with Tempting Treats

2006. 07. 24.

Chocolate lovers are invited to journey through a world of decadence with 'Doc Choc' a.k.a. Patrick Fields, Ph.D. during this year's Evening of Chocolate at Albertson College of Idaho.

The event begins at 7 p.m., on Friday, July 28. Participants will expand their knowledge of chocolate during the first part of the evening, satisfy your chocolate curiosity with answers to questions about what chocolate is, where it comes from, its chemical make-up (this one will surprise you!), how various types of chocolate are made, and some of the myths and quirky tales about what has been called "The Food of the Gods!"

After the lesson, the real fun begins with a chocolate tasting. Doc Choc will bring a more than a dozen kinds of chocolate for you to taste. Discover your own personal chocolate desires and determine your favorites of the bunch.

The indulgent night is more than just a delicious opportunity to learn more about chocolate, proceeds from the event will be used to support the Orma J. Smith Natural History Museum. The cost of admission to the Evening of Chocolate is $15.00 by cash or check only. There will be free tours of the museum available prior to the chocolate event. The event will be held in Room 127, Boone Science Building on the Albertson College of Idaho campus.

Reservations are required to ensure that everyone who attends will have enough chocolate. In addition to the lecture and tasting, there will also be drawings for raffle prizes and a silent auction.
