An article from the New York Times, mentions a new book about chocolate briefly. I believe, though the article does not list the authors that it must be this book by Louis E. Grivetti and Howard-Yana Shapiro. As with most academic books, trust me, Sisters and Brothers, as a PhD in history herself, your Chocolate Priestess knows these things, this is an expensive book. However if you think about it having 1000 pages then that's only 10¢ a page at it's full price. Again I haven't read this but I wanted to bring it to your attention so you can check it out in your local library or if you have that kind of money buy it yourself.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
