    1. I didn't know it was possible to be BORED reading about CHOCOLATE! She just talks too much about the various strains of cacao. I really enjoyed all the historical documents and images that are included. Some of the recipes look intriguing to try. And now when we are Powerball winners, I may have a greenhouse built so I can try and have a Minnesota strain of cacao.



    2. From the different species, to an incredible history of global production and trade, this book has it all. Great photos of a world I never knew about.The author is a bit of a chocolate snob, like a single malt whiskey lover, she only prefers single source chocolate with a known heritage. But, if your budget allows, maybe you'll be come a snob too after reading this book.


    3. I'm creeping my way through this, since I sometimes fall asleep a little too easily when reading non-fiction. We are going to try some of the recipes though.I'm enjoying learning the history of my favorite food and about the cultures that discovered it.



    4. It's "Identifying Cacao" and "Tasting Chocolate" sections are unique and worth reading for anyone serious about learning about chocolate.
