Books about chocolate

Ever wanted a more cerebral take on your sweet tooth? Serious Eats has a round-up of 5 great books about chocolate.

David Lebovitz, whom I love, gets a nod for his The Great Book of Chocolate, and Dorie Greenspan’s Chocolate Desserts is also noted. (Braggy aside: I adore my copy of her book, Baking: From my Home to Yours, which she signed, “With the hope that life will always be as sweet as candy.” My thoughtful boyfriend got it for me.)

And if you want a shorter cerebral take, somewhere in my computer archives, I’ve got a 14-page paper about Hershey’s, Cadbury, and Lindt & Sprungli that I wrote for a History of Food class.
