Here are some of my favourite mouth watering passages from Chocolat.
'On a white marble shelf are aligned innumerable boxes, packages, cornets of silver and gold paper, rosettes, bells, flowers hearts and long curls of multicoloured ribbon. In glass bells and dishes lie the chocolates, the pralines... truffles, mendiants, candied fruits, hazelnut clusters, chocolate seashells, candied rose-petals sugared violets...'
'... I went into the kitchen for two meringues, which were still warm and treacly inside their chocolate envelopes and served with thick creme Chantilly and chopped hazlenuts.'
'We make the delicate liquer chocolates, the rose-petal clusters, the gold-wrapped coins the violet creams, the chocolate cherries and almond rolls in batches of fifty at a time...The smells of vanilla essence and cognac and caramelized apple and bitter chocolate fill the house.' Joanne Harris Chocolat
