Chocolate Zusammenfassung

Chocolate: The Consuming Passion Sandra Boynton

Here is the absolute ideal gift for every true chocolate obsessive, adults, kids, everyone in between and it's even better than actual chocolate, since this book will last so much longer. And, unlike chocolate, the book is also great for sharing. A New York Times bestseller in its original edition, with over 500,000 copies sold, Chocolate is a timeless illustrated classic, filled with useful facts and vital misinformation. And it has now been thoroughly updated, rewritten, and redrawn by Sandra Boynton with over 200 drawings featuring those beloved and often bewildered Boynton characters. The new research was extensive: Diligent to a fault, Boynton nobly sourced and consumed untold quantities of great chocolate, with no thought for her own personal safety. Discover the many faces of chocolate - milk chocolate, dark chocolate, boxed chocolates, faux chocolate, and the exciting and intense new frontier known as "craft chocolate." Learn about chocolate's complex effects on the body, the brain, and the soul. Prepare select simple recipes, such as "Hippo Pot de Mousse," specifically designed with the impatience of the chocolate-loving cook in mind.There's even a handy guide to saying "Excuse me, where is the nearest chocolate? " in eleven languages. Including Klingon. Boldly go.

Chocolate Bewertungen

"Chocophiles -- and others -- will find practical information amid the humor." --The Sacramento Bee

"The most successful of her several books for grownups ... defies genre, but on first blush one might be tempted to call it an illustrated natural, culinary, and industrial history of chocolate. What is striking about 'Chocolate, ' though, is the way its seemingly unvarnished earnestness is coated in a generous robe of sardonic tastemaking."
--Ian Bogost, The New Yorker

"Sandra Boynton deserves mention alongside more frequently acclaimed masters of cross-generational entertainment, like Matt Groening and Jim Henson."
--Ian Bogost, The New Yorker

Über Sandra Boynton

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children's author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over sixty children's books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold, "mostly to friends and family," she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children's music. Three of her albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold), and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has gone Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning "One Shoe Blues" starring B.B. King, "Alligator Stroll" starring Josh Turner, and "Tyrannosaurus Funk" (animation) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.
