The New Taste of Chocolate: A Cultural and Natural History of Cacao with Recipes

Book Description:

Cacao importer and chocolate expert Maricel Presilla takes chocoholics to new territory—to the almost primeval plantations of Latin America, where the world’s first, and today’s finest, cacaos are grown. Presilla, who is at the forefront of the revolution in fine chocolate making, explains that the flavor and quality of chocolate depend on the complex genetic profiles of different cacao strains and on cacao farmers carrying out careful, rigorous harvesting and fermentation practices. With 25 recipes from internationally known pastry chefs and chocolatiers like Pierre Hermé and Elizabeth Faulkner, and directions for making chocolate at home, THE NEW TASTE OF CHOCOLATE elevates our taste for this food of the gods to a whole new level.
