Chocolate is unique. The main secret of its exquisite pleasure is that it is the only substance to melt at blood temperature, gently exploding into a warm sensual liquid, filling your mouth with an incomparable, hedonistic feeling that is so delicious you just want to go on savouring it.

• Over 150 recipes from confectionery to cakes, pastries to puddings.
• Over 240 pages with beautiful photography throughout.
• An authoritative and absorbing history of chocolate and its processes from pod to palate.
• Sara Jayne-Stanes is the country’s leading exponent of hand-made chocolate truffles.
