Raising the Bar "Just give me all your chocolate and no one gets hurt!" Billions of us worldwide understand what it means to scream those words. We feel lost--even unhinged--without chocolate's pleasures. And if chocolate is the music that makes our days brighter, fine chocolate is the symphony--the richest, most complex form in the chocolate universe. The most important movement in that symphony's centuries-old ... Full description

An awakening call to the uncertain future of fine chocolate 29 octobre 2012
Par Sarah M Hartman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Funny and witty, Raising the Bar: The future of Fine Chocolate delivers what it promises: an in-depth analysis of the current fine chocolate situation, both in the bean to bar spectrum as well as in the chocolatier end. The book devotes a large portion of its writing explaining what is happening to cocoa beans today, expanding on the issues faced by farmers, brokers, and buyers alike and finally exploring what the impacts are to the final end consumer. If you do not know much about the backstage of chocolate manufacturing, this is the perfect place to start. It explains in a friendly manner all the aspects involved in creating our favorite treat and how many of these steps on the ground (the cocoa farms) are in danger of extinction. It does so through the eyes of those who are involved in the field - manufacturers and chocolatiers alike. Various snippets from interviews with some of the world's most prominent chocolatiers give great insights into this current chocolate situation.
I am impressed with this book and with all the knowledge I have gained from it. Quick and easy to read, the book sheds light into a story that is highly important not only to the future of fine chocolate lovers, but to the impacts on nature, genetics, politics, social responsibility and the people who have made chocolate a significant part of their lives.
I suggest this book to anyone and everyone. Just as we are growingly fascinated with our organic chicken and wether they have been pasture-raised or not, we should as well be obsessed with a treat that most of us have a daily interaction with. Right now, too few people are interested in understanding chocolate and saving the future of fine chocolate. If you are a chocolate lover, this book is a must read. If you are not as much a chocolate lover, this book will give you a new appreciation and respect to the brave souls working in the industry.

Grab a bar of chocolate, and dig in for a thought provoking read. 23 octobre 2012
Par Melanie Boudar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Raising the Bar, the Future of Fine Chocolate is an in depth look at the global dilemma of the shrinking genetic pool of cacao that produces not just chocolate but the beans that produce "fine flavor" premium chocolate, chocolate that needs to be saved to ensure a future of our favorite guilty pleasure.
Its a look at the future of chocolate-the efforts of scientists,geneticists, farmers, chocolate distributors and artisanal chocolatiers to classify fine flavor genetics so they can be preserved and propagated. It challenges the concept for Fair Trade for a new paradigm of Direct Trade and raises the question who and why to farm cacao in the future as demand rises but pay does not. Why will we spend money for wine but not pay for the living wage of a farmer? Why shouldn't farmers plant high yield, engineered cacao that will feed their families but produce bland bulk chocolate with little credible chocolate flavor? MAny of the ideas presented in this book could apply to our food production of other products as well....think GMO.
The thought provoking concepts in the book are gleaned from interviews with some of the finest Craft chocolate makers and fine chocolate industry leaders in the world. They give their opinions on the now and future of all things concerning the fine chocolate industry globally ,everything from Organic certification, Raw chocolate, "Healthy" chocolate, social responsibility and sustainability with flavor concerns as top of mind.
This is an excellent book that will make you think more and appreciate your fine chocolate more. Have a good stash of chocolate on hand for the read.

Ideal gift for the chocolate lover and for the curious. 25 novembre 2012
Par Pamela Oram - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Looking for a good read? Then look no more. Raising the Bar: The Future of Fine Chocolate is an enjoyable, informed read in four parts about something that most of us love.

This well researched book provides insights into the concerns that our favorite treats may be in danger and that there is time to do something about it.

This is an ideal gift for the chocolate lover and for the curious who will learn as I did, how fine chocolate is made and produced and that we have a choice to support chocolate manufacturers and chocolatiers who support what we believe in.

I'm giving this yummy book to my friends & family! 24 novembre 2012

For a true chocolate lover, this is delectable!

Raising the Bar: The Future of Fine Chocolate lets you understand what's behind the chocolate you love. An affordable luxury and healthy pleasure, good chocolate is heading in the direction of fine wine & gourmet food. This book gives details about how chocolate is made and produced, so you can choose chocolate manufacturers and chocolatiers who support what you believe in.

Examples are discussions about fair trade practices and treating farmers well to ensure the chocolate industry's preservation (there's a great story about a chocolate manufacturer bringing the final manufactured chocolate bars back to the cacao farmers in a small village in Venezuela). There is also info about GMOs and the concerns of chocolate manufacturers, as well as the sheer joy of exploring all the flavor possibilities of chocolate!

Raising the Bar opened my eyes. 19 novembre 2012
Par Brian Follett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
An easy and thoughtful, behind-the-scenes read without being heavy and technical. I stumbled into the book through a friend who knows how much I love chocolate. Raising the Bar added a new perspective and some interesting insights into the future of my favourite indulgence. Comments from some well respected industry insiders got me thinking a lot more about premium chocolate than how really special it tastes.
