Présentation de l'éditeur

International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) 2010Award Finalists in the Culinary History category.

Chocolate. We all love it, but how much do we really knowabout it? In addition to pleasing palates since ancient times,chocolate has played an integral role in culture, society,religion, medicine, and economic development across the Americas,Africa, Asia, and Europe.

In 1998, the Chocolate History Group was formed by theUniversity of California, Davis, and Mars, Incorporated to documentthe fascinating story and history of chocolate. This book featuresfifty–seven essays representing research activities andcontributions from more than 100 members of the group. Thesecontributors draw from their backgrounds in such diverse fields asanthropology, archaeology, biochemistry, culinary arts, genderstudies, engineering, history, linguistics, nutrition, andpaleography. The result is an unparalleled, scholarly examinationof chocolate, beginning with ancient pre–Columbian civilizationsand ending with twenty–first–century reports.

Here is a sampling of some of the fascinating topics exploredinside the book:

  • Ancient gods and Christian celebrations: chocolate andreligion

  • Chocolate and the Boston smallpox epidemic of 1764

  • Chocolate pots: reflections of cultures, values, and times

  • Pirates, prizes, and profits: cocoa and early American eastcoast trade

  • Blood, conflict, and faith: chocolate in the southeast andsouthwest borderlands of North America

  • Chocolate in France: evolution of a luxury product

  • Development of concept maps and the chocolate researchportal

Not only does this book offer careful documentation, it alsofeatures new and previously unpublished information andinterpretations of chocolate history. Moreover, it offers a wealthof unusual and interesting facts and folklore about one of theworld′s favorite foods.

Important, eclectic survey 21 août 2010
Par Donald Hausrath - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is indeed a remarkable collection. As the editors stated, "much of the chocolate story has been told elsewhere" and the impressive historical research that went into this book does not attempt to make an encyclopedic sweep of the subject. For example, while you will find a ten page, well-illustrated article on "California's Chocolate History" with 80 footnotes, you will find just over a paragraph on Milton W. Hershey although one of the primary objectives of the study that produced this book was to "determine historical patterns of introduction and dispersal of chocolate products throughout North America." There are two references to the largest chocolate and coco maker in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century, Stollwerck Brothers, ( Stolwerck's (sic) in the index). One is a sentence about a chocolate trade card and later a paragraph is included the Stollwerck pavilion at the 1893 Columbian Exposition. Stollwerck, according to a biographer of H J Heinz, "made chocolate like the Krupp steelworks made steel." Among the innovations Heinz and others were to emulate in America were a focus on the purity of the product from source to sales, niche marketing, and reliance on steam-powered machinery. While one of the book's objectives, to "identify the development and evolution of chocolate-related technology in North America," it is best to keep in mind that this important collection of essays sheds light on disparate, fascinating topics, but cannot survey the amazing story of chocolate, in all its "history, culture and heritage."
