    I bought this book along with 2 others and I don't care much for this one either.

    Early on, the authors maintain that the “amount retained [of chocolate] for home consumption in 1860 was only 1,181,054 pounds—about 3-5 of an ounce for each inhabitant. The amount retained for home consumption for the year ending Dec. 31, 1908, was 93,956,721 pounds—over 16 ounces for each inhabitant.” In my research, Forbes Business (July 2015) gives the amount that Americans eat per year as 9-1/2 pounds, much less than the 20 pounds per year the Swiss consume per person.The author’s of this book opined that it “is evident that the coming American is going to be less of a tea and coffee drinker, and more of a cocoa and chocolate drinker. This is the natural result of a better knowledge of the laws of health, and of the food value of a beverage which nourishes the body while it also stimulates the brain.”The book continues with more chocolate history and data before getting down to the nitty gritty of the recipes.How to make a cup of hot chocolate thick? Add a bit of cornstarch.There’s an interesting recipe that appears to be a gelatin dessert: It might be worth a try.Overall, this is a useful resource book, even for candy.

    This is a digital copy of an old old cookbook. It's like the ""company" cook books of today. The original book was published in the late 1700's by The Walter coca company. Every recipe calls for that brand of chocolate product. The recipes don't have an ingredient list but by reading the recipe first one is given the measurements. Easy to substitute a current brand of chocolate. I haven't tried a recipe yet but intend to after the holidays.

    Though I assumed this to be an older cookbook, I still found the format to be challenging to use. I'm sure it is useable for those who have the patience and time to sort out the ingredients from within the text, but for myself I found it too cumbersome a style for this spoiled modern cookbook reader. I hope this helps you decide if you want to download the book and if you are one of the patient types please let me know how you did it!

    It's chocolate what else needs to be said

    I didn't read this. I just want this off my non-reviewed list. I went over my head getting books that I didn't really had the time to read. I may get it again who knows, but I doubt it. I gave it a middle rating so it won't alter good nor bad this book as I don't know if it deserves bad or good review. Sorry and thanks for understanding.
