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