Note Translation of: Desig de xocolata.
Winner of the Ramon Llull Prize 2014.
First published in Catalan by Editorial Planeta, S.A. in 2014.
Summary Three women, three centuries and the same porcelain chocolate pot: Sara, the scion of a dynasty of chocolatiers from Barcelona, who prides herself on maintaining the family tradition; Aurora, the daughter of a nineteenth-century maidservant, for whom chocolate is a forbidden luxury; Mariana, the wife of a famous seventeenth-century chocolate manufacturer, an official purveyor to the French court and the inventor of a revolutionary chocolate mill. This novel takes us on a spellbinding journey, masterfully juxtaposing the destinies of the protagonists, chronicling the history of our favourite confection and exploring Europe's changing social norms. Luscious and addictive, this novel will delight the reader's senses from start to finish.
