This Funzing Experience:

What is chocolate for you? What did your parents tell you about chocolate eating? What is the first thing you think of when you think about chocolate?

For most people chocolate is not a healthy food, for some it is even a sin. But is it?

For me, until few years ago, chocolate was a wonderful thing. It even become the centre of my life, but I did not look at it as good, healthy food.

At this talk I want to start think of chocolate in a different way. The Maya and Aztec treated the cocoa beans and cocoa drink very seriously. They even use it as cure. With no scientific ability to prove it, they were right about it.

Over the few last decades many studies have been conducted by many universities and scientists about the things inside our chocolate and what it is that makes us love it so much.

I think that the amount of healthy properties found in chocolate are amazing. As much as the black / brown / white gold is investigated, more and more benefits to our bodies are revealed.

We will talk about a few of the benefits of chocolate, what it does to our body and our brain, and last of all - why is it so good for us.

During the second part of the talk - Raanan will show what, from his point of view, makes a chocolatier a chocolatier. Or why a chocolatier is much more different to a person who simply knows to melt and temper chocolate nicely.

Taste: Each attendee will have the opportunity to taste a few chocolate pralines, that will be prepared specially for this talk - as well as hearing some more detailed information about each one.

Venue: Lock 91, Deansgate

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
