Over 240 pages with beautiful photography throughout. An authoritative and absorbing history of chocolate and its processes from pod to palate. Sara Jayne-Stanes is the country's leading exponent of hand-made chocolate truffles.Review:
"Sara's chocolate truffles are one of the marvels of the edible world. Her book is just as good and lasts rather longer." Matthew Fort, Food and Drink Editor, The Guardian; "This is truly a magnum opus. The history is highly readable and particularly absorbing. The Chocolate Clinic is a brilliant idea and then the recipes! Their breadth and range must be unique in scope. Since I have never tasted better chocolate truffles than Sara's the inclusion of her own recipe alone must be worth the price of the book to any chocolate lover." Frances Bissell, The Times"
