For many people, one of the most enjoyable pleasures is a delicious piece of chocolate. Chocolate is more than just a sweet. Itís a rich sensation; a comfort; a stimulant, and itís good for you Ė in moderation. And of course chocolate is the magic ingredient in many delicious dishes.
The Bittersweet World of Chocolate explores the story of this delectable food. It reveals an eventful history and explains why more of us are buying Fair Trade chocolate. Accompanied by 50 recipes from around the world, such as turkey in chocolate sauce, orange and chocolate biscuits, fondue and cheesecake, this book gives a chocolate boost to the mind and the body.
"I look forward to the day when a much larger percentage of [cocoa] that we grow is sold at a fair price. This will happen because people will read book like this Bittersweet World of Chocolate. More consumers will want it, governments will support it and ultimately companies will see it is right."
