A Post-Colonial Chocolate Tasting 101

Trinidad was once the 3rd highest producer of cacao in the world and has always been known as having some of the finest flavoured beans.  Even the now concreted streets of Port of Spain were once lined with cocoa trees. Join the Alliance of Rural Communities of Trinidad and Tobago to explore cacao in literature (at the National Library) & taste multiple different chocolates in a guided tasting.  The evolution of cacao and chocolate in Trinidad is one of our most important national stories and where best to tell it but at the Bocas Lit Fest? Pre-registration and advance payment required for all ARC events.
