Cacao Plantations. The first cargo of cacao beans arrived in Europe aboard Spanish galleons in 1585. Today, cacao trees are still cultivated in the heart of the tropical forests, where their fruit is harvested and prepared for export according to time-honored traditions / John Feltwell assisted by Nathalie Bailleux
The History of Chocolate. Europe's first contact with chocolate was the highly spiced beverage which the Aztecs called the "food of the gods." By the eighteenth-century, chocolate, served hot with milk and sugar in delicate porcelain cups, had become a staple in aristocratic homes and royal courts / Pierre Labanne
Great Names in Chocolate. The history of modern chocolate begins with the technical innovations of the great nineteenth- and early twentieth-century industrialists like Lindt, Nestlé, Van Houten, Cadbury, and Hershey and continues with the fine gourmet chocolate makers of today / Odile Perrard, Mariarosa Schiaffino, Régine Kopp, Cristina Pauly, Corby Kummer
The Taste of Chocolate. Whether in the form of delicate truffles, elegant dark chocolate, or dense chocolate cake, the pleasure of chocolate is enhanced by its affinities with coffee, fruit, and liqueurs. These fabulous combinations are revealed here, along with ten classic recipes / Hervé Bizeul
