SAVE/SAVOR: How Our Choice of Chocolate Impacts Biodiversity and Social Justice
September 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Join MOFAD and Simran Sethi for an evening of in-depth exploration of chocolate’s unique flavor as well as a discussion of its social and environmental implications. Simran Sethi, a journalist, fellow at the Institute for Food and Development Policy, and author of the award-winning book, Bread, Wine, Chocolate: The Slow Loss of Foods We Love, will facilitate a virtual conversation about how the cocoa industry can, and should, be a critical driver for social and environmental change.
As part of the evening, Simran will lead a guided tasting of chocolates grown and produced in four distinct cocoa origins (Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil, and the U.S.) as a way to help chocolate lovers better understand flavor, chocolate, and the impact consumer purchases can have in supporting a more just and sustainable food system.
Chocolate tastings and Simran’s book can be purchased and delivered for an additional cost.
