Indulgence : One Man's Selfless Search for the Best Chocolate Paperback


Everybody loves chocolate. From Willy Wonka to Ferrero Rocher, the Cadbury's Flake girl to the man from Milk Tray, it is embedded in our culture like no other foodstuff.

The 'Prozac of Candy' produces the same chemicals in your brain as when you fall in love.

Paul Richardson has had a sweet tooth ever since his grandmother fed him Lindt milk chocolate animals as a boy.

Now, in this fascinating new book, he satisfies a lifelong craving by travelling the world to find out the history of this most popular of foodstuffs.

It is a journey that begins in the cacao groves of Guatemala and Mexico, and takes him from the old world to the new, to mainland Europe and the chocolatiers of Paris and Zurich, to Britain and America, and the homes of Cadbury and Hershey.

For chocolate lovers everywhere - and let's face it, that's most of us - INDULGENCE is a treat.

Witty, insightful and wonderfully readable, this is the tastiest book you'll devour all year, bar none.
