Event Description

MUNCH, MINGLE AND MATRICULATE – A HISTORY OF CHOCOLATE WITH TASTING


Please join the Lightner Museum in welcoming world-renowned food historian and James Beard-nominated author Francine Segan to St. Augustine for a series of lectures and dining experience.  


Discover chocolate’s history, starting with its New World origins, journey to Europe, and transformation over the years that turned it from a grainy bitter brew into the treat we know and love today. Learn how chocolate goes from bean to bar as you are guided through a tasting of various types of fine chocolates. Discover the roles Christopher Columbus and Casanova played; how decadent 17th century European high society experienced chocolate; and how candy is made today.


Ms. Segan’s lecture with chocolate tasting will be held on December 14 at 10:30 AM in the Casa Monica Hotel Ballroom.


Proceeds from this event allow the Lightner Museum to continue expanding our program schedule and increase audience engagement.
