Chocolate! ... virtual talks

Finally, chocolate talks. I've written blog posts on chocolate, in fact my first post was on Raffald's Chocolate Puffs, and other posts on Liotard, his 'La Belle Chocolatiere' used on this Baker's Chocolate cover. Here is a list of upcoming and taped past talks on chocolate, in time for Valentine's Day. Dr. Leni Sorenson is giving a talk on colonial chocolate in the Atlantic world and Dr. Leslie Goddard on more modern chocolate candies. So listen to the doctors (and the others) talk about chocolate!

Beat and sift half a pound of double-refined sugar, scrape into it one ounce of chocolate very fine; mix them together. Beat the white of an egg to a very high froth, then strew in your sugar and chocolate, keep beating it till it is as stiff as a paste. Sugar your papers, and drop them on about the size of a sixpence, and bake them in a very slow oven.
Raffald, Elizabeth. The Experienced English Housekeeper. London: 1786
