More Than Just a Chocolate Recipe Book
Naked Chocolate, published by North Atlantic Books, gives the reader a bit of insight into why chocolate is adored, eaten, and reserved as a special treat to most people in the world. In fact, chocolate is really even worth money. At least this was so in central Mexico hundreds of years ago (1500s) where workers were paid in cacao beans.
Written by David Wolfe and Shazzie, this book explores a history of chocolate, the three different types of chocolate, its important role in some cultures, the way it’s made and what happens during this processing, the scientific evidence in regards to many health benefits of this amazing gift from nature, and, of course, delicious, nutritious recipes.

Naked Chocolate refers to chocolate in its most natural and raw form, or as the cacao bean. The chocolate discussed in Naked Chocolate is in this raw, unaltered form.

Learn the myths and legends associated with this life-giving food, what it’s really made of, and many new ways to eat, cook, and enjoy chocolate.

In fact, you can find a recipe and way to devour healthy chocolate everyday with the tasty recipes in this book.
