Mast Brothers chocolate tasting

Last week, Matt and I decided to check out an after-hours chocolate tasting at the American Museum of Natural History, hosted by Mast Brothers. Have you ever tried their chocolate? It's incredible—and the pretty, hand-wrapped packaging that each bar comes in is one of my favorite things.

The tasting traced the history of chocolate (it dates back 4,000 years!) with a brief talk, reading and film by Michael and Rick Mast. Then, the chocolate. :) There was so much to sample and try! We even got to grind our own cacao beans. 

The coolest part of the whole night was meeting Michael and Rick. We bought their brand-new cookbook, and are looking forward to trying this recipe for Hot Chocolate. Seems like the perfect way to get through the remaining snowy days, right?
