Inside New York's First Chocolate Museum
The sweet history of Chocolate is assembled in New York's first Chocolate Museum founded by famed Pastry Chef and Chocolatier, Jacques Torres.
For Torres, the Museum is an opportunity to share his passion with others. The space, located at Torres' Flagship Store, showcases artifacts from the Mayans, Europeans and includes interactive displays.
The museum explains that chocolate was first produced as a drink 5,000 years ago by the Mayan culture and was consumed to celebrate special events. Chocolate was later turned into an edible solid form by Europeans.
