2) ChocoSol Jaguar Chocolate Making Workshop
Wednesday, July 31 from 6:30 to 9 PM at ChocoSol (225 Geary Avenue)
Join ChocoSol’s Founder (Michael Sacco) and Lead Chocolatier (Chrystal Porter) for a hands-on small group jaguar chocolate making workshop. Attendees will hand grind, mold, and temper jaguar chocolate, learn about the ingredient process, and enjoy a tasting and talk.
Jaguar cacao, ye li, patastle, pataxtle, theobromae bicoloris: these are some of the English, Chinanteco, Nahuatl, and Linnean names for a cacao seed that grows in the ancient forest gardens. Not only are the forest gardens habitat for fauna like the jaguar, they provide ways for indigenous communities to create safety belts of communal use around natural areas. This is beyond conservation, and is rooted in millennia of ecological and spiritual stewardship. Today, ChocoSol is proud to be part of a small cadre of chocolatiers, chefs, farmers, and artisans participating in the regeneration of the jaguar cacao, both through seedling planting and intercultural encounter, dialogue, and exchange, as well as through recipe development and intercultural learning.
Attendees also have the opportunity to purchase jaguar chocolate at a reduced price.
