The Slow Melt: How to Savor Chocolate

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Eating is an act of digestion: lift substance to mouth, chew, swallow, process. Tasting is something else. It requires us to slow down and pay attention. It demands our eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, head and heart. Drawing from herbook (Bread, Wine, Chocolate: The Slow Loss of Foods We Love) on saving diverse varieties of cocoa and other foods by savoring them, Simran Sethi will dissect each of our senses and reveal how they work individually and together to inform our experience of flavor. The presentation will include a protracted tasting as a means of understanding how flavor manifests, allowing participants to develop a new intimacy with chocolate and a deeper understanding of the factors that influence and inform their tasting experience.
