This Funzing Experience:
Join philosopher Julian Baggini and chocolate expert Spencer Hyman for an evening that will change the way you think about chocolate – and how you eat it.
With the help of tastings of craft chocolate we'll be investigating what the humble cocoa bean teaches us about the nature of experience, the good life and our responsibilities to others.
We'll also be asking: Is good food purely a matter of taste? What is "natural" food and is it better?

What should we believe about the health benefits and risks of chocolate?

Dr Julian Baggini is the author of numerous books of philosophy including the award-winning The Virtues of the Table and the recent How the Word Thinks. he is academic director of the Royal institute of Philosophy. Spencer Hyman is a partner and co-founder of Cocoa Runners, purveyors of the finest craft chocolate.

Venue: The Grafton, Kentish Town

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
