Art of Making Cacao

Mmm...Chocolate

WHEN
December 2, 2023 1:00 pm -
December 2, 2023 4:00 pm

If you love chocolate — and who doesn’t? — you will want to join Melissa Gomez, a cacao expert, for a uniquely delicious experience all about one of our favorite sweet indulgences. You will learn about the origins, uses, and spiritual significance of the cacao plant — the fruit of which provides our beloved chocolate — and its seeds. In addition, we will make chocolate to honor its sacred place in traditional Central and South American cultures.

Non-member fee of $45 includes general admission to the Garden. Members receive a $10 discount.

Houston Botanic Garden offers free parking for most events, which are often held in climate-controlled environments, rain or shine. If you have specific questions, please email education@hbg.org.
