Yockelson (Baking with Flavor) has produced a book that is both encyclopedic and deeply personal, combining detailed information, clear instructions and engaging anecdotes. Even the most seasoned cacao bean lover will find surprises among the 200-plus recipes, while bakers at every level of expertise will appreciate the meticulous guide to techniques and ingredients (which includes a chart showing the relative strengths and uses of 180 different chocolates, from powders to Milky Way bars and imported brands). Recipes are organized around flavors, textures and themes, like "Back-to-Basics Chocolate Cakes," "Chocolate Pancakes" and "Mudslide." Whether explaining the family history of Chocolate Chip Cracks or Grandma Lily's Marble Cake, or the technical challenges of Bittersweet Chocolate Creams or Sweet Chocolate Streusel Tea Biscuits, Yockelson expands the reader's stereotypes about chocolate. It's a complex and seductive ingredient for grown-up eaters and the most sophisticated cooks. With 150 color photographs in a lush, oversized format, this work is destined for a long life on every serious baker's shelf. Agent, Mickey Choate. (Aug.) (Publishers Weekly, May 9, 2005)

I was drawn to this book because I was in a hurry at the library and it was the only book that did not have the word "diet" or "light" in the title. Read morePublished on November 12, 2010 by NVanPutt
I was so disappointed in this book - and it looked so promising. I noticed many reviewers commented on its prettiness which is great if you want pretty in a cook book, but I want... Read morePublished on May 18, 2009 by Annie MacDonald
This book is gorgeous, with full-page and full-color photos for most recipes. The recipes are achievable for most home bakers with ingredients on-hand and with near-perfect results... Read morePublished on May 22, 2008 by Lisa C. Wolf
