The amazing stories behind our everyday foods - how they have changed the course of history, triggered wars, created black markets, are the cause for whole industries and have revolutionised our diets

Did you know that the chocolate bar you can pick up from any corner shop used to be a precious and exotic food that only aristocracy could afford? This book looks at the history of one of our favourite foods, from the ancient civilisations who made the first hot chocolate to today's global sweets industry.

Other topics covered are health aspects of chocolate, how it is produced, its chemical properties and how it is traded around the world.

An ideal leisure read, but also perfect for coursework and presentations.
