The Bittersweet World Of Chocolate

The Bittersweet World Of Chocolate

Book - 2006
Rate this:
Long before cocoa beans were turned into sleek bars of chocolate, Aztec and Mayan people in Central America used them as money. This book illustrates the pain and pleasure of chocolate, from the cocoa producers to the chocoholics; from the early history to today's world, with a look at advertising and seduction along the way; and from the might of Big Chocolate to the gathering force of fair trade. The book includes plenty of colour photos and 40 recipes using chocolate such as turkey in chocolate sauce, orange and chocolate biscuits and chocolate fondue.
