Are oysters really an aphrodisiac? Can you hack your taste buds? And why did it take humanity so long to invent the chocolate bar? In this special live performance of the podcast Gastropod, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley will serve up a three-course feast for your eyes and ears, including a special guest appearance from Ricardo Trillos, chocolatier at Cao Chocolates, the first and only bean-to-bar chocolate shop in South Florida. From live experiments to interactive tastings, the evening will combine special guests and field recordings to reveal the history and science behind the food we eat every day.

Gastropod is the award-winning podcast that looks at food through the lens of science and history. Every other week, Cynthia and Nicola release a new episode that explores the hidden history and surprising science behind a particular food- or farming-related topic, including topics such as aquaculture, ancient feasts, cutlery, chili peppers, and even music and Malbec. Join us and savor this very special live podcast event!
