What’s so special about chocolate? It’s just a tasty treat – isn’t it? As a matter of fact there’s far more to the humble chocolate bar, as this extraordinary book demonstrates. Describing the historical progress of the miraculous bean – from the Aztecs to Nestle – with a mixture of facts, speculation, personal recollections and recipes, Vivian French and illustrator Paul Howard take us on a wide-randing journey that gives us chocolate in all its glory.
