      Chocolate, in its many forms and varieties, may be the world’s most beloved substance. I’m certainly guilty of succumbing to near-orgasmic euphoria when indulging in a really fine chocolate treat. Much as I love chocolate, I really don’t know much about it—or didn’t till I read the richly illustrated Chocolatour: A Quest for the World’s Best Chocolateby Doreen Pendgracs.Before describing the distinctive regional qualities of chocolate around the world, Pendgracs delves briefly into t [...]

      Chocolatour is a testament to just how much one person can love chocolate. And who doesn't love chocolate? When I first heard about this book, I envisioned something like The World Atlas of Wine. Eventually, I think Pendgracs' book will approach that kind of scope as subsequent volumes are released. This first volume focuses on the best chocolate in Europe, but it contains some general opening and closing chapters on topics such as the history and health benefits of chocolate. The listing of cho [...]

      Organized into basics about cocoa farming, the development of the "personalities of chocolate," chapters on seven European countries known for their chocolate creation and/or love of chocolate, as well as information on festivals and the giving of "awards' for the best chocolate, Doreen Pendgracs "Chocolatour" is a great book for anyone who travels to Europe and wants to find great chocolate. With a good number of photos and the "personalities" concept to tie everything together it is a fun read [...]

      love this book. I'm a chocolate lover from way back and reading this book made me want to run out and buy some of my favourites Doreen Pendracs has done a wonderful job showing us about the different chocolates produced all over the worldHer work can be called an :"ode to chocolate", as well as a travel book. Either description would fit, but I find that it also reads like fiction, as I could not put it down till I devoured the whole book. Mind you, after that I so wished I had some of the real [...]

      If you're a chocolate lover like me, you'll want to read this book before you travel. Pendgracs knows her subject and I enjoyed learning about how chocolate is made and discovering the differences between the various regions. This is definitely a book I'll refer to when I'm planning future trips.I went touring some wineries in Ontario this week and recognized a brand of chocolate mentioned in the book – Brix – specially made to enjoy with wine. Tasting room staff recommended Brix Smooth Dark [...]

      Well done. Well written. I joined Doreen on her journey in London, England. It was amazing to watch her interview the chocolateers. Her knowledge of both chocolate and travel make this a highly credible and insightful book. It is easy to read. Enjoyable. I would recommend that before you take a trip you read Doreen's review of the country/city in her book and make sure to make time to visit the go visit the places she recommends. I can tell you first-hand you won't be disappointed. I am looking [...]

      Doreen Pendgracs has researched and undertaken a fascinating tour of all aspects of chocolate from all corners of the world. This first volume visits Europe and the UK, with America and the Caribbean to feature in volume two.Anyone with even the slightest interest in chocolate will find this a fascinating read, but be warned; you will need to have your favourite chocolate to hand before you delve into the book!

    • Susan P. Cooper says:

      This is such a well written and engaging read. I am learning so much about chocolate and where it comes from. It is fascinating to learn that chocolate, like all substances, has distinctive characteristics and can be identified by the nose and the taste. Then there are the chocolatiers who are masters and magicians who create some wondrous chocolate delicacies from the pure chocolate that comes from some dedicated growers. It is so worth the read. :-)

      If you are going to Europe, do not leave without this book. The author has done the digging for the best places to find top-quality chocolate. I'm not lucky enough to be heading to Europe, but I felt like I was there for a few moments, and learned so much about chocolate. A well-written, and unique approach to one of my favourite treats.

    • Esther Harrison says:

      Fabulous! A world traveler and a storyteller -- that's Doreen Pendgracs. As I read, I was voyaging with the Chocolatour herself as she set out on her decadent quest for the world's finest chocolate sensations. I confess, I lived vicariously through her wonderful journeys! I encourage everyone to experience Doreen's sensational travels as she immerses herself in the world of chocolate!

    • Jeannette Paladino says:

      This is an outstanding survey of the best chocolates around the world. The author visited many countries and has rated her favorites. She also lists the best chocolatours by city and region so that readers can sample the chocolates themselves. This is likely one of the most exhaustive studies of chocolates ever written. I highly recommend it.

    • Sandra Phinney says:

      I learned more about chocolate reading this book than I've known my entire life (69 years!) Lots of good information, interesting/entertaining and educational! Delicious read, as is the subject matter.

    • Rose Mary Griffith says:

      Chocolatour by Doreen PendgracsSimply reading the deliciously described table of contents to Chocolatour made me want chocolate. In the preface, Ms. Pendgracs explains the difference between cacao and cocoa and I realized right away that I've embarked on an educational journey to raise my chocolate IQ far above my existing elementary level. What I've known to date is that Brussels gave me the tastiest dark chocolate. Now I see what I've been missing during my other travels. I think I’d like to [...]

      I enjoyed this book so much - it tells you everything you could possibly want to know about chocolate plus it is written in a very interesting, readable style.It includes a number of beautiful photos of different places, Belgium being on the top of my list. It has one of the best chocolate truffles recipes which I can personally vouch for since I've made up several batches.Reading the book you get to enjoy the chocolate journey right along with Doreen.Highly recommend.
