Hot chocolate tonight, at the Maryland Historical Society
Tonight at 6 p.m., the Maryland Historical Society is inaugurating its series of Francis Scott Key lectures with Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate – the history and demonstration of chocolate from bean to drink and the silver implements used
The presenters are Susan Susan McLellan Plaisted of Heart to Hearth Cookery, who will focus on the history of chocolate in Maryland and demonstrate the oldey-timey method of making hot chocolate; and the society's Mark B. Letzer, who will show off some of the silver pots in the museum's collection. That's one of the museum's chocolate pots in the middle of the photograph.
The press release says that guests will taste hot chocolate decanted from historic silver pieces that art part of the collection.
THAT MAKES ME NERVOUS!
The whole event costs $50. RSVP to Elizabeth Stafford, firstname.lastname@example.org, and 410-685-3750 x 337.
