5.0 out of 5 stars no more curly wurly, 4 Jan 2010

This review is from: Indulgence: One Man's Selfless Search for the Best Chocolate (Paperback)
This book shamed me so much that (having the classic British taste for sweet and fatty goo) I rushed out to my nearest chocolatier (24 hr Tesco) and bought a bounty bar , only this time a dark chocolate one. Yum Yum . Good read though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A goodish read, 4 April 2009

This review is from: Indulgence: One Man's Selfless Search for the Best Chocolate (Paperback)
A good read, but I do find the language a bit flowery at times for my liking. Well researched, this book provides a useful addition to the canon of works that take an in-depth look at chocolate's history and its development and refinement. Unfortunately, the rate at which the fine chocolate market is developing means that the author's views on who the world's finest chocolate makers are, is already out of date, if not at the time the book was written 6 years ago. The only fine bar maker dealt with in any detail is Valrhona, with a single mention, in passing, of Amedei, and nothing on Pralus, Domori etc. Where chocolatiers are concerned, the French section holds up, but the UK piece was written before the rise to fame of stars such as William Curley, Damian Allsop and Paul A. Young. Four stars, but personally I prefer Mort Rosenblum's book, which I feel covers the same ground more interestingly.
