Chocolate: How a New World Commodity Conquered Spanish Literature UP Toronto, 2021.

"From conquest chronicles and missionary accounts to the raging religious and medical debates of chocolate’s value, to its many and varied appearances in early modern plays and other primary sources, Cowling’s fascinating study provides ample evidence of chocolate as status symbol and the fervour that surrounded it throughout the early modern era."

~Carolyn Nadeau, Byron S. Tucci Professor of Spanish, Illinois Wesleyan University
