Lot's of great information and truth about the Raw gem of a bead. Just, believe it or not, I am kind of getting over the necessity for chocolate. ...more

Upon cracking the cover of 'Naked Chocolate', one first encounters the disclaimer issued by the David-Shazzie duo. Not too surprising given the subject matter (natural health, etc.). Shocking however, is the 'Note on References' that follows three paragraphs later. The reserach that went into the book is referred to as 'chaos magic'. Personally, I prefer documented facts. The authors go on to state that some references to studies and facts were lost. Lost? Here I quickly become skeptical of the ...more

I expected a lot from this book, but perhaps precisely because I am a raw foodist chocolate addict myself the title just didn't measure up. I read the theoretical part of it in one sitting, skipping the endless chemical composition lists and diagrams (seriously, is anyone is interested in that I believe they will be conducting their own independent research and such data does not belong in a mass interest cookbook/reference title in my opinion). I don't feel like I have learned much new from it, ...more

David Wolfe's books are getting better as the years go by, but not good enough. I liked this one just a tad more than Superfoods, although I am still sceptical. Almost convince, but not quite. The photos are really cool, as well as the Galeano style dabbling into Meso-American legend. There is also an illustated outline of most of the foods from Superfoods. I figure some day Wolfe will be able to revise his books and give us something cool and straightforward without being such a cheeseball. Al ...more

About as 'twirling hippie' a book as you can get and I absolutely loved it. The raw food community is pretty guilty of circular referencing of scientific 'proof' and 'research' and there is plenty of pseudoscience in evidence here but... I don't need scientific proof to know something makes me feel fabulous and that something is delicious and that's what this book is all about. FULL of inspiration for how to harness the miraculous health powers of cacao. ...more

I read this book already 10 years ago and really enjoyed it at the time... it sparked my passion to experiment with making my own raw vegan chocolate. With recent findings that cacao is quite contaminated with heavy metals I changed from having it every day to once in a while. Some of David Wolfe's ideas I find quite whacky but entertaining. ...more

Chocolate is good for you... but most especially best when it is in it's most natural state - raw and dark. This book encouraged me to make my own raw chocolate from scratch. Which I still hope to do ... one day. In the mean time I enjoy the darkest chocolate I can find with the least unnecessary ingredients. ...more
