Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather a skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO-HOO, what a ride!"
Those of you who love quotable quotes may like to know I have recently published a 100-page book which is choc-full of them. Called ‘The Language of Chocolates’, it is a collection of sayings, definitions, allusions, connections and illustrations (mostly my own) on everything there is to like about chocolates. Sara Jane Stanes, one of the founders of the Academy of Chocolate in the UK, described it as ‘utterly compelling and enjoyable’; and Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat, said it was ‘scrumptious’. I think it is an ideal handbook or reference for chocophiles - a book that can be taken everywhere, and something to be reached for when in need of an elegant snack, or some sweet inspiration. If you would like to obtain a box, I mean a copy, for yourself, the book is available from www.amazon.com and other online booksellers. Here is a picture of he cover:
