Chocolate or cocoa is not properly cooked by having boiling water poured over it. It is true that as the whole powder is in suspension and is swallowed, its food material can be assimilated as it is when prepared chocolate is eaten raw.

In order to bring out the full, line flavor and to secure the most complete digestibility, the preparation, whatever it be, should be subjected to the boiling point for a few minutes. In this all connoisseurs are agreed.

The making of cocoa and chocolate for drinking is largely a matter of taste, the best of cooks disagree and their recipes vary; the recipes in this book, however, give almost universal satisfaction.
