EASTER IS ON its way and it’s time to think about chocolate! We like to think we have a low calorie alternative to the usual Easter chocolate binge, in the form of Davide Cali and Evelyn Daviddi‘s delightful I Like Chocolate. The picture book is a celebration of chocolate in all its forms and, with its positive messages about sharing and moderation, it’s an ideal gift for the chocolate-loving youngster.
One shop in Australia has sold more copies of I Like Chocolate than any other, and you may be surprised to learn it’s not a bookshop.
Melbourne chocolatier Monsieur Truffe has been stocking the book since its release and has sold a stack of them. So, if you find yourself in the Melbourne suburbs of Collingwood or East Brunswick, why not drop in on Thibault and his crew and pick up something special for Easter? You could also book yourself into their popular chocolate appreciation class while you’re there. (I imagine the dropout rate for that class is quite low.)
Incidentally, you can read Davide Cali’s reminiscences of how he came to write the book here.
