A few lines from my favorite of her books (no need to explain why): Chocolate: The Consuming Passion.
- Research tells us fourteen out of any ten individuals likes chocolate.
- Carob is a brown powder made from the pulverized fruit of a Mediterranean evergreen.

Of course, the same arguments can as persuasively be made in favor of dirt.
- Chocolate: The Consuming Passion was written for the Chocolate Elite -- the select millions who like chocolate in all its infinite variety, using 'like' as in 'I like to breathe.'
