“Few people in the world know as much about chocolate as Maricel Presilla, or write as passionately about it. Her pioneering book, The New Taste of Chocolate, is the first to document the fascinating diversity of cacao varieties and their influence on chocolate quality. It also describes and celebrates the full arc of chocolate’s evolution, from pre-Columbian times to the twenty-first century. This book will be a revelation and delight to anyone who loves chocolate.”
—Harold McGee, author of On Food and Cooking
“The New Taste of Chocolate is fascinating and genuinely original. Based on unique, personal knowledge, Maricel’s book will serve as a primary research source and change the way chocolate lovers think about and taste chocolate.”
—Robert Steinberg and John Scharffenberger, co-founders of Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker, Inc.
“It’s not a coincidence that chocolate and gold are sold in bars. Chocolate lovers who treasure history and recipes will find this book as valuable as it is delicious.”
—Flo Braker, author of Sweet Miniatures
“Maricel presents a colorful, textured, and in-depth view of the past, present, and possible future of cacao. We are also allowed a taste of the diversity that was once part of the palate of flavors used by the chocolate industry of old and insight into why some of these may be lost forever.”
—Gary Guittard, president of Guittard Chocolate Company
“After reading Maricel’s book and recognizing the sophisticated and complex journey from cacao in the field to the wonderful quality chocolate available to consumers, you will have a whole new appreciation for chocolate. Maricel offers detailed insight into the nuances of chocolate. A ‘must read’ for all chocoholics.”
—Emily Luchetti
“The New Taste of Chocolate is a loving tribute to cacao and the unsung heroes who have nurtured it for centuries, miraculously transforming it from bean to bar to the latest chocolate creation. Maricel’s meticulously researched book deserves a place of honor in every serious chocolate lover’s library.”
—Elaine González, author of The Art of Chocolate

MARICEL E. PRESILLA is a culinary historian, author, and chef specializing in the cuisines of Latin America and Spain. She studied medieval Spanish history at Spain’s University of Valladolid and at New York University, where she received her PhD.

Presilla is a frequent contributor to Saveur, Food & Wine, and Gourmet, and also writes the Miami Herald’s “Cocina” column. A recognized authority on all aspects of chocolate as well as on Spanish and Latin American culinary history, she has given numerous seminars, tastings, and lectures to culinary groups nationwide and has been featured in the country’s top food publications.

She has been a consultant for several food companies including the Venezuela-based Chocolates El Rey C.A., whose premium chocolates she helped introduce to the United States. She is the co-owner and chef of two restaurants in Hoboken, New Jersey: the small pan-Latin Zafra and the more formal South American Cucharamama. The restaurants have earned Presilla repeated nominations for the James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef Mid-Atlantic award. In September 2009, she was awarded the prestigious Silver Spoon Award by Food Arts magazine for her multifaceted contributions to the culinary arts.
Presilla is the author of three illustrated books on various aspects of Latin American culture and a forthcoming book on Latin American cooking. Her newest venture is the food store and cooking atelier Ultramarinos in Hoboken. She divides her time between her New Jersey restaurants, Miami, and Latin America.

The New Taste of Chocolate: A Cultural & Natural History of Cacao with Recipes 20. März 2011
Von Desertgypsy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this book upon a recommendation of a professional Chocoliter program I'm enrolled. It is a wonderful book rich in history, the growing and manufacturing. Anyone who is interested in chocolate I believe would find this book fascinating. I have tried many of the recipes and find them a wonderful culinary experience.

the one 14. Mai 2013

Before I bought The New Taste of Chocolate I read the reviews & the table of contents [when available] of all the books about chocolate that Amazon sold. This is the one I choose & I'm glad I did. Presilla knows & loves the many aspects of chocolate.

I was interested especially in the history of chocolate. We get the interaction of Mesoamerica & South America pre- & post-Columbus explained, plus the spread to other continents. Disease problems, DNA research, etc also are explained. Making nearly any of the recipes would require shopping at an Hispanic market, so I'll probably stick to reading them. That's just as well, as they are pretty high-calorie, with lots of heavy cream etc. The first & probably only one I'll try is a chololate & corn meal beverage.

Great overview of chocolate 10. November 2014
Von SW - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I bought the first edition of this book when it came out. I see this is a revised edition, which I am also ordering. A beautiful coffee table-type book, it is very comprehensive, covering the history, genetic varieties, processing, endangerment, and future of chocolate, as well as recipes. The author grew up spending time on her family's cacao plantation.

This book was thorough, interesting, and well done. It's beautiful, has informative and beautiful pictures, and a great narrative with personal information, some history, and covers chocolate from plantation to finished product. On top of that, she includes recipes!
