About the Book
Author Megan Giller invites fellow chocoholics on a fascinating journey through America’s craft chocolate revolution. Learn what to look for in a chocolate bar and how to successfully pair chocolate with coffee, beer, spirits, cheese, and bread. This comprehensive celebration of chocolate busts some popular myths (like “white chocolate isn’t chocolate”) and introduces you to more than a dozen of the hottest artisanal chocolate makers in the US today. You’ll get a taste for the chocolate-making process and how chocolate’s flavor depends on where the cocoa beans were grown — then turn your artisanal bars into unexpected treats with 22 recipes from master chefs.

About Raaka Chocolate
Raaka makes chocolate from scratch with an uncompromising commitment to the highest quality. Raaka builds every bar from the bean up, bringing out the best, most delicious flavor in each single origin they work with. The word “raaka” means raw in Finnish. Raaka claims no Finnish heritage, but the meaning and cadence captures their style Since 2010, Raaka has been crafting trend-setting, award-winning chocolate without roasting cocoa beans, focusing on fine flavor cocoa, creative processes, and whole food ingredients, herbs, teas and spices. It has been said that great chocolate requires roasting; Raaka is the delicious disproof.
