The delectable journey into the planet of chocolate--by the award-winning author of OlivesScience, over latest many years, has confirmed what chocolate lovers have constantly known: the stuff is actually very good for you. It truly is the Valentine\'s Day drug of choice, has more antioxidants than red wine, and triggers the very same brain responses as falling in love. Practically nothing, in the end, can stand up to chocolate as a basic fundament to human daily life.In this scintillating narrative, acclaimed foodie Mort Rosenblum delves into the complex world of chocolate. From the mole poblano (chile-laced chicken with chocolate) of ancient Mexico to the contemporary French chocolatiers who make the palets d\'or (bite-sized, gold-flecked bricks of dark chocolate) to the huge empires of Hershey, Godiva, and Valrhona, Rosenblum follows the chocolate trail the planet more than. He visits cacao plantations meets with growers, purchasers, makers, and tasters and investigates the dark side of the chocolate trade as properly as the enduring appeal of its item. Engaging, entertaining, and revealing, Chocolate: A Bittersweet Saga of Dark and Light is an intriguing foray into this \"food of the gods.\"
