Who doesn't fantasize about starting a chocolate shop? How about living on a beautiful Maine island? Kate Shaffer did both when she moved to Isle au Haut and eventually opened Black Dinah Chocolatiers. From the island community to the difficulties of getting precise ingredients to the shop by ferry, you'll experience island life through Shaffer's essays. And she'll also share delicious recipes not only for chocolates themselves, but for incorporating chocolate into a variety of sweet and savory dishes.
