Excerpt from her book:

... American makers weren't interest in creating chocolate from scratch in the traditional European style. They viewed the addition of cocoa butter and vanilla as adulterations of the pure ingredients, and they wanted to challenge themselves as well as to develop a new style of chocolate, an American style. That's why many of them focused on using two ingredients: cocoa and sugar. Rather than following the European methods of balancing all flavors to create an even deep chocolate taste, offset with cocoa butter and vanilla, American makers started to exaggerate the natural flavor notes in each variety of cacao, so that you immediately tasted what that bean was about. The resulting chocolate was big, bold and brash — like, well, Americans — and it's inspired a new school of bean-to-bar makers across the world.
