Description

Chocolate... dark, white or milk; smooth, plain and creamy or bursting with flavours and textures, it's guaranteed to get the pulses racing. And with chocolate-making now one of the most exciting areas of Britain's artisan food scene, this book takes you on a tantalising tasting tour of the country's sweet spots that helps you explore chunks of Britain while enjoying the country's best and most authentic chocolate.

Whether they're based in the Highlands of Scotland or the mountains of Wales; a shed in Cleethorpes or in the shadow of Winchester Cathedral, we seek out the rising stars of the chocolate industry, try their mouthwatering products and explore towns and cities where the bean-to-bar magic takes place.

Among the people and places included are Duffy Sheardown, a former Formula One racing engineer who makes bars of chocolate in a shed in Cleethorpes that are prized by chocolate connoisseurs all over the world; Willie Harcourt-Cooze, a glamorous globetrotter who grows cocoa in Venezuala and makes chocolate in Uff culme, Devon (sold in Waitrose); and the passionate young women of Dormouse, who from tiny premises in Manchester are winning international accolades.
