HASH(0x8f661d20) out of 5 stars The New Taste of Chocolate: A Cultural & Natural History of Cacao with Recipes 20 Mar. 2011

I purchased this book upon a recommendation of a professional Chocoliter program I'm enrolled. It is a wonderful book rich in history, the growing and manufacturing. Anyone who is interested in chocolate I believe would find this book fascinating. I have tried many of the recipes and find them a wonderful culinary experience.

Before I bought The New Taste of Chocolate I read the reviews & the table of contents [when available] of all the books about chocolate that Amazon sold. This is the one I choose & I'm glad I did. Presilla knows & loves the many aspects of chocolate.

I was interested especially in the history of chocolate. We get the interaction of Mesoamerica & South America pre- & post-Columbus explained, plus the spread to other continents. Disease problems, DNA research, etc also are explained. Making nearly any of the recipes would require shopping at an Hispanic market, so I'll probably stick to reading them. That's just as well, as they are pretty high-calorie, with lots of heavy cream etc. The first & probably only one I'll try is a chololate & corn meal beverage.

HASH(0x8f64dc00) out of 5 stars Great overview of chocolate 10 Nov. 2014
By SW - Published on
I bought the first edition of this book when it came out. I see this is a revised edition, which I am also ordering. A beautiful coffee table-type book, it is very comprehensive, covering the history, genetic varieties, processing, endangerment, and future of chocolate, as well as recipes. The author grew up spending time on her family's cacao plantation.

Wonderful book on chocolate. Author Marcella Presilla takes her subjects seriously and has done her homework providing the reader with a wealth of information on chocolate.

In addition to the discussion of chocolate, there are wonderful recipes provided on all aspects of chocolate.

This book was thorough, interesting, and well done. It's beautiful, has informative and beautiful pictures, and a great narrative with personal information, some history, and covers chocolate from plantation to finished product. On top of that, she includes recipes!
