Clanfield Gardening Club -Food of the Gods - the utterly divine history of chocolate

Russell Bowes talks about the history of chocolate.

Congratulations, lucky finder of this Golden Ticket, which entitles you to a guided tour of Wonka's famous chocolate factory, conducted by Mr. Willy Wonka himself! You will learn all about the history of chocolate from its discovery in the forests of central Mexico to the birth of the modern chocolate bar, and your tour will include tickets to a rehearsal of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, a ride in the Great Glass Elevator to a chocolate processing plant, breakfast with a Spanish Marquesa and possibly - if you have been very good indeed - some free samples to take home with you.

About Russell Bowes:

Russell is a freelance garden historian and has been giving talks on the subject since 2000 and in 2003 he was awarded the University of London Diploma in Garden History. He has given talks at the National Portrait Gallery, the Imperial War Museum, Chelsea Physic Garden, The Eden Project and Blenheim Palace, as well as for many National Trust Members' Associations, over 90 branches of the U3A, the WI, and hundreds of local horticultural and historical societies as far apart as Falmouth and Durham.
