Dorchester, birthplace of American chocolate!

On Sunday Feb 19th we were finally able to attend the annual chocolate event at the Dorchester Historical Society - what fun! The capacity crowd learned about the history of chocolate, introduced to the US in Dorchester in 1765 (factoid via presenter and judge Rebecca Scheier of Tie Your Apron), celebrated the 3 cook-off winners (congratulations Jack Dennerlein, Candice Gartley and Judy Raup!) and tasted lots and lots of delicious homemade chocolate-y treats. Afterwards, walked the dog for 20 miles or so to work off all those calories!
