Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After having had great success working with recipes from Maxine Clark's awesome book on tarts (Tarts - Sweet and Savory), I became a huge fan of Ms. Clark, and purchased this chocolate book with high expectations. I teach quite a few classes using recipes from Ms. Clark's tart book at my pastry school. This chocolate book has the same format as the tart book, with the most fantastic looking photos of the end products for each recipe, and the methods of preparation are described with just the right level of details.

The disconnect is that the recipes are all in cups, by volume, rather than by weights (ounces or grams).

Any serious baker would be looking for recipes in weights, not volume. I've tried to convert the quantities to weights but it's a real pain and not very precise. As chocolate desserts are typically more difficult to make, requiring a lot more experience and knowledge on the part of the baker, and the recipes presented in this book are quite complex and professional - all the more reasons for the recipes to be in weights.

I refer to the book now mainly to cross reference other recipes on a similar product, turning to recipes in this book only as a last resort. I'm sure Ms. Clark can appreciate that as so many things can go wrong in the baking process, that the last thing the baker should have to worry about is the accuracy of the ingredient quantities.

I have had this book from the library for three weeks and have read every recipe. They are clear, delightful, and much nicer than your average chocolate dessert. Cannot wait to begin making the desserts; I know family and friends will love them. Going out to purchase my own copy today.

This is one of the most beautiful cookbooks. Pictures are fabulous and recipes interesting. I have many books about chocolate but this is my favourite one. Full of inspiration and prepared in every single detail. Highly recommended.
