Chocolate was previously considered a sweet and people consumed it just like chocolate. This product is currently appreciated worldwide as another food and is already used in everything, hot dishes and starters, Jorge said recently at the International Varadero Gourmet Festival.
The Cuban chocolate school, located in the Food Industry Research Institute in this capital, is the governing body for the development of the product and staff training for a dozen centers in Cuba dedicated to making chocolate, Jorge said.
The center, founded in 2001, is also dedicated to production, in addition to teaching and research. (Prensa Latina)
