POTTSTOWN PA – Back in 18th Century, before modern chocolate gained its smooth consistency, it was usually consumed as either a hot beverage or as an ingredient in various dishes. See how the colonists put chocolate to use during Valentine’s Day cooking demonstrations to be held Feb. 13 (2016; Saturday) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Pottsgrove Manor, 100 W. King St.
During the open-hearth cooking program, historic cook Connie Unangst will prepare a variety of centuries-old recipes using chocolate. Visitors can stop in the manor kitchen any time during the event to see what’s cooking. Guided tours of the manor, the home of Pottstown founder John Potts, will also be offered on the hour throughout the day. The museum shop will also be open.
A donation of $2 per person is suggested.
Pottsgrove Manor is located near the intersection of King Street and Route 100, just off U.S. Route 422. For more information, call 610-326-4014.
