Wait. Sandra Boynton wrote a book about CHOCOLATE? For grown-ups? Oh YES! Boynton's beloved classic returns, updated and redrawn by her for a whole new generation of chocophiles. In addition to her extensive new research, Boynton also nobly sourced and consumed untold quantities of great chocolate, with no thought for her own personal safety. Lavishly illustrated and filled with useful facts and cheerful misinformation, CHOCOLATE: The Consuming Passion is the absolute ideal gift for every true chocolate obsessive. Discover the many faces of chocolate--milk chocolate, dark chocolate, boxed chocolates, pretend chocolate, and the wild new frontier of small-batch craft chocolate. Learn about chocolate's complex effects on the body, the psyche, and the soul. Prepare select simple recipes, such as "Hippo Pot de Mousse." Learn how to grow your own chocolate, assuming you don't mind relocating to within 15º of the Equator. There's even a handy guide to saying "Excuse me, where is the nearest chocolate?" in eleven languages, including Klingon. (Nook-dock YOOCH dah-PULL?) Boldly go.  … (més)

Doom. In the best of all possible ways. Doom. (Despite images of dogs who consumed chocolate - don't let your dog or cat do that) I adore this book. ( )

Had this book for years. Unfortunately, I can't remember anything about this book but I believe I gave it to chocaholic I worked with for years. She ate chocolate EVERY day and I thought this would be perfect for her. ( )

I know Sandra Boynton from her children's books and was delighted when I came across this title about chocolate which is described as being written, illustrated, and overresearched by the author. The original version was written in 1982, this version being rewritten in 2015. Fun facts, funny images, and humorous renderings makes this a quick and enjoyable read.

My favorite part is the introduction which is very funny including - the history of chocolate and how to pronounce it; the degrees of like; what is really meant by chocolate, and the difference between a gourmet, gourmand, and gourmoo.

"At the very least, a craft chocolate artisan has to be botanist-explorer-anthropologist-visionary- historian-ethnologist-linguist-sociologist-economist-diplomat-philosopher-accountant-
lunatic-negotiator-mechanic-inventor-chemist-designer-packager-merchandiser-promoter. (p38)

I also learned alot about how temperature affects chocolate making it sweat, bloom, melts, and burns. (p69)

I read this as I was identifying great books for LEARNING WITH CHOCOLATE (A Homeschool Curriculum for the Whole Family) -- I enjoyed the book but decided not to include it in the collection. I did go back and include the one section on page 69 that tells how temperature affect chocolate since I did not come across that topic in any other book. ( )

This fun little book takes a humorous look into our favorite food. Enjoyable and lightly informative. Best of all are the delightful illustrations - love those hippos! ( )

I found this gem at an estate sale. I loved the book and laughted the entire time reading it! It explains the differences between the different types of chocolate... even the dreadful white chocolate. The book does contain recipes as well as how to grow your own cacao beans (expensive and time consuming). Even though it was written in the 80s, it still reigns true today. ( )
