All You Ever Wanted to Know About Chocolate

By Vivian French

Illustrated by Paul Howard

Find out all there is to know about chocolate in this mouth-watering book full of fascinating facts – and some shocking truths!

Everyone loves chocolate! But there's far more to it than we thought... Did you know that a chocolate drink was a perfect way to poison your enemy? Or that English pirates once robbed a Spanish ship and thought the sacks of cocoa beans were sheeps' droppings? Describing the historical progress of the miraculous cocoa 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-ranging journey that gives us chocolate in all its glory.
