Chocolate Times Three

I'm a chocolate lover, not exactly a rarity, although I concede that chocolate doesn't appeal to everyone. So when I saw this video about a chocolate maker who truly makes chocolate from scratch, I was intrigued (because if I can't eat chocolate all the time, I'll gladly watch videos about it).

LE CHOCOLAT - Alain Ducasse from Simon PĂ©nochet on Vimeo.

Of course, that made me remember movies I'd seen where chocolate was a key player...like Chocolat.

This led me to a book on the history of chocolate (Note: there is a newer edition, as noted at the link, but I liked the cover on this version). 

Of course, if you don't want to read an entire history, here's a brief article on the history of chocolate from the Smithsonian website.

Off to find some of the real deal. If you're a chocolate lover, I hope you have some on hand. If you do, enjoy!
