“Chocolate curls, white buttons with coloured vermecelli, pains d’épices with gilded edging, marzipan fruits in their nests of ruffled paper, peanut brittle, clusters, cracknels, assorted misshapes in half-kilo boxes…I sell dreams, small comforts, sweet harmless temptations to bring down a multitude of saints crash-crash-crashing amongst the hazels and nougatines.
Is that so bad?”
Extract from ‘Chocolat’ by Joanne Harris
