Cocoa: An exploration of chocolate, with recipes [9781787132603]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Chocolate has beguiled us for centuries. From the spiced drinks sipped by the nobility in ancient Mexico to the artisan bars filled with weird and wonderful flavour combinations we devour today, chocolate has always had a magical pull on our senses.

Exotic, indulgent, hedonistic and sensual, its power over us somehow exceeds the sum of its parts. This ground-breaking exploration of chocolate, by award-winning writer and lifelong cocoa enthusiast Sue Quinn, will intrigue, inspire, surprise and fascinate you in equal measure.

In these pages is a wealth of cultural, historical, and culinary information about the story of chocolate through the ages and across the world, illustrated with vintage packaging, iconic advertisements, and stunning illustrations.

Interspersed throughout the book are 80 sweet and savoury recipes to tantalise the taste buds, such as Salted Caramel and Lime Chocolate Sauce; Triple Chocolate and Liquorice Cake with Treacle Praline; Spelt, Chocolate and Cranberry Crackers; and Coffee, Chocolate and Chipotle-Glazed Beef Short Ribs.
