Welcome to my blog – a dictionary of chocolate words you always knew were there but didn’t know where to find.

INGREDIENTS: An unctuous array of yummy definitions illustrated with interesting examples.

NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION: Whether it’s milk chocolates you love, snack bars, expensive truffles and ganaches,  pralines and marzipans, or, indeed, anything cocoa themed, there’s sure you to be something  in this dictionary to enrich your vocabulary.

GUARANTEE OF SATISFACTION: To fully enjoy The Chocolate Dictionary, dip in and sample what’s on offer just as you would your favourite box of chocolates.

SEMIOTICALLY SPEAKING: Semiotics is the interpretation of signs and symbols, including the motivations behind our desires and inclinations. Yes, there’s a fair bit of it here.
