April Thurs 6th, June Valentine on Chocolate

By March 24, 2023April 12th, 2023No Comments

Guest Speaker: June Valentine

Topic: Chocolate

Just in time for Easter – hands up who likes chocolate?  There won’t be too many who don’t like that sweet or bittersweet treat.  Which is, of course, why it is one popular food on the planet and why it is so often associated with feasts, gifts and good times.

In this presentation, June will explore the history and health benefits of chocolate. Stay for chocolate tastings and see if you can tell the difference and which is your favourite.
