Praise for Chocolate Life

What others are saying:

"The broad experience that Malcolm Saunders has with chocolate spills out on these pages like chocolate sauce on dessert or mole on an enchilada or cacao nibs on coconut ice cream. Malcolm understands this delicious subject from the cacao (chocolate) tree and its prized cacao beans all the way to nearly every type of chocolate drink, concoction, and dish imaginable. Who is most qualified to write about the Chocolate Life and fill us with the delight of every conceivable chocolate recipe type and category? Malcolm Saunders! Bright, rich, entertaining, and nourishing... these pages of the chocolate liLife are an exquisite outtake of The Best Day Ever!!"

- David Avocado Wolfe, organic cacao farmer, chocolatier, horticulturist, nutritionist and author.

Sitting with this book felt just like sitting with Malcolm himself: Accessible and approachable, humble and humorous! I can say that he has been one of the people who taught me, a neuroscientist skilled in studying things in isolation, about the magic of synergy. I met him shortly after I became certified in holistic nutrition, in my quest to go beyond the Band-Aid for brain and mental health, and witnessed firsthand that the sum of his chocolates and elixirs was greater, something just more, than it parts.

This book will simultaneously give you a taste of the science and introduce you to (or expand your understanding of) the art of elevating comfort food desserts with homemade, whole food chocolate and superfoods. I’m a big believer that eating for brain and mental health can and should be anything but boring - and the recipes in Chocolate Life do not disappoint!

I was so enthralled I read the book cover to cover including all the recipes in one sitting!  Malcolm’s ‘Chocolate Life’ and his life of chocolate takes you on an intimate journey with his stories, knowledge, and expertise; he is a true alchemist and chocolate maker. This book captures the essence of the magic of sacred cacao; thank you for including the Cacao Ceremony!  I am excited to share it with my health coaching tribe!

  • Heather Driedger, Certified Licensed Health Coach, Author ‘Living Joy – Empowering Ways to Reduce and Manage Stress’

I remember the first time I held a fresh cacao pod in my hand in Hawaii... cracking it open, tasting the fresh beans, learning about the amazing process it goes through to become chocolate - It was a spiritual experience! I wanted EVERYONE to have that feeling... As someone who often indulges in Malcolm's delicious chocolates, I am so thrilled that he is sharing his knowledge about this sacred plant in this accessible, informative, fun, delicious book!
