PhD Chocolate Tasting

Chocolate is often an integral, but rarely acknowledged, part of the PhD process. As part of their transferable skills training for PhD students, the Department of Geography, Environment and Development Studies (GEDS) decided to explore this further, with a chocolate tasting session run by Anthony Ferguson of Niko B Chocolates. The session was introduced by Kate Maclean and Rosie Cox, whose opening talks framed the session in terms of the relationship between taste, food and embodied knowledge. Following a geographical theme, students and staff tasted chocolate from around the world, and learnt to distinguish the multiple taste and texture sensations of chocolate truffles.
