Book Description

Please note that the Kindle version does not permit, for obvious reasons, the journal and chocolate wrapper aspects that the book offers.

The Chocolate Lovers' Guide and Tasting Journal is a non-fiction book combining the fundamentals of chocolate including types of chocolate, varieties of chocolate, storing chocolate, tasting chocolate and your impressions, and a place to record your chocolate's history and tasting as well as saving your chocolate's wrapper. It is a device to record your journey through your chocolate world creating a road map taking you back to your cherished chocolate favorites.

The Chocolate Lover's Guide and Journal is a teaching guide to learn and grow in your chocolate experience and record your journey as you go. The text will cover:

Sight – what to visually experience with your chocolate
Sound – what type of sound you should listen for during your chocolate experience
Touch – how your chocolate should feel between your fingers
Smell – the sense involved so much with taste and how important it is
Mouthfeel – how does the chocolate feel in your mouth, on your tongue
Taste – what flavors do you savor in your mouth, there are usually many complexities to this

The main concept behind The Chocolate Lover's Guide and Journal is as follows:

Catalog all of your chocolate as you consume it creating an experience, a memory. Record the basics – the chocolatier, the name of the bar, where it was purchased, the date it was purchased, the cost, the type of chocolate and the percentage of cocoa. Record the experience – the sight, sound, touch, smell, mouthfeel and taste. Record anything special you want to note about this chocolate or experience. Remember your favorites chocolates. How many times do we think we will remember the name of something and then forget. Record memorable moments shared over the chocolate – a special event, a bad day made better by chocolate, a vacation or weekend getaway. Each chocolate wrapper page will share a quote able chocolate to make the true chocolate lover smile. You can take this anywhere with you. It becomes part of your life, part of your memories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition - An Introduction to Chocolate Heaven 21 Sept. 2010
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Annmarie is obviously a true chocolate connoisseur. She knows how to tell the difference between superior and inferior chocolates. In this short book she briefly gives the basics of chocolate tasting. She warns against buying chocolates with artificial flavorings because they can produce a strange aftertaste. She also explains why you should never leave chocolate in the refrigerator or place it near strong smelling items like onions. I personally learned my lesson about this when I tried to cool down some chocolate truffles I was making in the same freezer where I was storing garlic bread. I ended up having to remake all the chocolates before a party.

Anyway, this book also contains a "chocolate dictionary." After the brief introduction and dictionary chapter the rest of the book is dedicated to journaling. This doesn't work so well in the Kindle edition although you can make electronic notes throughout the book if you wish.

If you are interested in going through all the journal pages you will be rewarded with some good chocolate quotes. So if you want a book to record all your chocolate experiences I'd go with the paperback version of this book. If you are looking for twenty minutes or so of reading for 99 cents then I can recommend this version. This was the first book I decided to read on my new kindle!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun and Useful Chocolate Book 21 April 2010
By Y. Maffei - Published on
This is such a fun book. It's the perfect book to keep with you when you travel around to various chocolate shops, festivals and other tasting opportunities. In the beginning of the book there's a nice explanation of the different types of chocolate to bring you up to speed on what to look for in your tasting experiences. I can't wait to use it!
