Chocolate Past And Present

From Denny: Fun video about the history of chocolate when chocolate was often consumed as a meal rather than as a snack. Wow! Fun to watch how our Colonial Early American ancestors used to hand-roll and grinding on a board at a 45-degree angle they crushed the cocoa beans to make their early morning chocolate drink. It isn't the hot chocolate as we know it today. Even the Revolutionary War soldiers drank this chocolate in the morning as we drink coffee today. Then the video moves on to famous chef Jacques Torres discussing wonderful chocolate trends of the future. Cool informative video!
