'Part travelogue, part cultural history, part literary gastronomy, Indulgence is full of the hilarious, the delicious and the downright bizarre: in Italy Paul Richardson samples the delicacy of sanguinaccio, a tantalising blend of chocolate and pig's blood; he recounts the shocking story of the seventeenth century Bishop of Chiapas, who 'got his chocolate' after refusing to let his congregation drink hot chocolate; and in Hershey, self-styled 'Sweetest Place on Earth', he enjoys a chocolate massage that leaves him feeling like a human profiterole.'
