The chocolate connoisseur : for everyone with a passion for chocolate / Chloé Doutre-Roussel.
New York : Jeremy P. Tarcher/Penguin, c2006.
[MCL call number: 641.3374 D741c 2006; eight copies, no holds]

Chloé Doutre-Roussel is a queen of chocolate. She is the expert's expert, and she is here to tell you all you need to know to sharpen your palate for this magnificent food. Doutre-Roussel introduces chocolate agriculture, production, packaging, marketing, and of course, chocolate eating. She provides readers with a course in chocolate tasting — tailored to each person's specific chocolate interests and tastes — and gives pointers on where and how to find satisfaction and continued interest once one has begun to appreciate the subtleties of flavor, texture, and smell. Even if the book inspires you to try a mere one or two new varieties chocolate — or perhaps only to compare those you have already eaten, there is little doubt that your sense of the edible world will expand.
