Geography of food: Chocolates of the World
Thursday August 17, 2017
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
Chocolates of the World!
~~Chocolate is a luxury food that is loved (and craved) globally. In this course, we will go on a journey of chocolate from the currency of the Aztec Empire to current day fair trade movements in places like Ghana and Ecuador. Like wine and coffee, chocolate production and distribution is imbued with geographic elements, such as environmental conditions and global economic factors. In this class, we will sample chocolate products from throughout the world.
Led by Dr. Pope
Samples will be served!
~~Dr. Pope is a Professor of Geography at CCSU and teaches all levels of human geography courses, including a course on the Geography of Coffee. She came to this specialty after her scholarship and teaching in and about Latin America and the Caribbean.
