About Gonzalez Enders
Ernesto González Enders, born in Peru, was a surgeon, biologist and scientific researcher with a passion for gastronomy.
During his academic career, he held the positions of academic vice-rector and coordinator of the Faculty of Medicine of the UCV.
After a trip to Mexico to delve into the Anthropology of Food, he founded the Chair of Food Anthropology and, later, the Food and Culture Diploma.
In this area of gastronomy, he delved into three particular topics: cocoa, coffee and sweet chili.
And it is from this great collection of information that Ernesto left about cocoa that this book was created, which can be downloaded free of charge by those attending the event.
