An informal discussion series linking art, literature, and history. February 4, 2016.

Who can resist chocolate, especially during February? Hershey’s kisses are a small part of the story of this exotic, sensual, and controversial commodity.

Join us as we travel through the world of chocolate using a chapter from Wolfgang Schnivelbusch’s Tastes of Paradise : A Social History of Spices, Stimulants and Intoxicants and a Costan Rican chocolate pot as our primary guides.

Participants must read the selection from Schnivelbusch in advance and post a question for discussion in the team room by Tuesday, February 2. The reading and the team room will be provided on line once participants register through BOCES at

Parking and coffee will be free and the conversation will be priceless!
