Setting the Bar: A Craft Chocolate Origin Story

Free Alston Lecture


Join Director Tim Shepard in a special preview of selected footage from their latest documentary program, Setting the Bar: A Craft Chocolate Origin Story, as they share the story of chocolate from bean in the Amazon to bar in high-end cafes and stores. The film follows a group of craft-chocolate makers as they venture into the Peruvian jungle to strengthen direct relationships with farmer communities and identify new kinds of cacao to bring to market. Elaine Read and Matt Weyandt, the co-owners of Krog Street Market's Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate, appear in the film and will be here to talk about their journey to creating sustainable and artisanal chocolate products.

Presented by Tim Shepard, Director and Elaine Read and Matt Weyandt, Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate
