Read an Excerpt

Chocolate has always been one of my favorite survival foods. It is full of addictive flavor and popular in all forms of preparation. It is great for cooking and wonderful to eat any time of the day or night. If you have never seen the blossoms of the cacao tree, they are beautiful. If you do not have access to a computer, please check with your local library to find pictures of this beautiful tree.

As a poet, I found it enjoyable to color this cookbook with poetry so that readers could savor the metaphorical richness of chocolate as well as its literal flavor. Also included are some articles on history, cultivation, and botanical information, along with interesting facts about chocolate. Sections that discuss health and nutrition as well as some chocolate folklore are also included in this book.
