Chocolatology: Chocolate's Fantastical Lore, Bittersweet History, & Delicious (Vegan) Recipes
We wrote a book! It came out in January and is available in the Mefi Mall. We've been chugging away at putting all the words online, and they're pretty much all scheduled to be up by the end of the year. Or so. Enjoy!

Blog highlights (things that weren't in the book)

- tidy s'mores
- chocolates we have loved. Also links to the answer to "So which chocolates SHOULD I buy?" question.
- Recipe writing style guide - this is really really useful if you're writing a cookbook!
- radioactive chocolate
- plant milk, defined
- true fact


My favorite recipes from the book:

- Cherry Chocolate Milk
- Drinking Chocolate / Bicerin / Mini Fudgesicles
- Aquafaba Cashew Ganache & Chocolate Frosting by Goose Wohlt. Reader! Let me tell you! Goose Wohlt and Rebecca August BOTH contributed recipes to this cookbook! They're superstars of the aquafaba scene! So that was exciting, but it's also just really good ganache.
- Ranger Cookies by Heidi Timm. Any recipe by Heidi Timm, I tell you. This is a person with baking skillz.
- Tamarind-Ginger Bran Muffins (post scheduled for December 20th)
- Fresh Rich Strawberry Drink
- Hummus of the Gods (chocolate beet hummus with a secret ingredient (asafoetida) that really ties it all together somehow. I made this and was like, hmmmm, needs asafoetida. And my partner was like "???" and then I added the asafoetida and it was indisputably perfect.
- I loved the pozole (I really really love hominy). That recipe goes up in a couple weeks.
- Strawberry-mint sandwich might be on my top-three list, and I don't even usually like sandwiches! It's really good!
- Saucy Roasted Eggplant is definitely on my top-three list. Drop it in a pie shell.
- Sunset Wheat berry Salad by Angela Piller: This recipe is in season now! Right now! As we speak! Go harvest a persimmon tree!


The wordy bits are starting to populate, too, now. For starters: Chocolate in Africa: From Cadbury to Child Slavery
