Chocolate: A Bittersweet Saga of Dark and Light
Mort Rosenblum (au); Mary Scarvalone (il)
Delves into the mysteries of cacao: its history, its legends & lore, the processes that make chocolate. Rosenblum cooks “mole pablano” -- chili-laced chicken with chocolate -- under a Mexican volcano; visits plantations during an African rebellion; helps master chocolatiers make “palets d’or” -- bite-size, gold-flecked bricks of dark chocolate. He probes the empires of Hershey & Godiva, & the closed-door realm of Valrhona. He watches at each step as cacao pods on spindly trees in dank jungles end up as creamy “mousse au chocolat.” He meets with buyers & tasters in the U.S. & across Europe to discover the diverse trends, demands, & traditions of chocolate lovers. He investigates the bitter fights & rivalries -- the dark side of the chocolate trade. Illus.
