Chocolate

I've watched Chocolat but I haven't read it. Loved the movie, I might just have to download it from your Digital Library....

Hi Ericalw, let us know what you think. Is the book better than the movie? Its often the case.

Ericalw said...

oooh going to be a tough one... I like Johnny Depp so the movie was pretty good :) Will let you know.

I like Johnny Depp too! They were both good, but I preferred the book because there was more detail- movies always seem to leave so much out.

After all that chocolate, I'm going to recommend Confessions of a Reformed Dieter, by AJ Rochester (written before she began hosting The Biggest Loser). This is a very candid account of AJ's attempt to lose weight and change her relationship with food (don't worry, there is chocolate cake on the cover).

I saw the book "Chocolate: a love story :65 chocolate dessert recipes from Max Brenner's private collection" and was just drolling!! I can't cook but the pictures were fantastic! Does anyone want to cook them and I'll taste test?

For my chocolate book I read small knight and george and the royal chocolate cake, this book is for children and my nephew loved hearing it (I do think it was just the pictures of chocolate cake that made him smile). But the book has great morals for children about being using your manners and how using them is the best way to be other wise you wont be able to play with others or get your slice of royal chocolate cake.

I've been flicking through Cadbury's Purple Reign lately, it’s full of excuses to get your test tasting bib on… Keeping that in mind I think I need to renew it online tonight!

Does anyone remember the Cadbury Mini-Roll? They look so yum!
