Editorial Reviews

Review

"An irresistible book for chocolate lovers... gives fascinating detail about the cultivation and production, from beans to delicious chocolate." -- Olive, November 2003

"Best Chocolate Book in the World." -- Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, 2003

"Rarely have I found so many tempting recipes under one cover." -- Darina Allen, Irish Examiner (Jan 04)

"This is going to be utterly gorgeous - a chocolate fantasy come true... A must." -- The Bookseller, June 03

"This pays homage to the cacao pod in all its delicious incarnations amd is packed full of stunning recipes." -- Marie Claire

From the Publisher

Chocolate is full of texture and taste and it can be turned into sweet and savoury, simple and sophisticated recipes. Above all, chocolate inspires many moods and so the chapters are divided into Magic (glamorous recipes for dinner parties), Abracadabra (quick and easy recipes), Light and Airy (light puddings and mousses that melt on your tongue), Licking the Bowl (for children and birthdays) and Wicked (those irresistible concoctions). As well as the more traditional ideas for cakes, puddings and biscuits, there are also more surprising recipes for soups (chocolate soup), chillis and meat (chicken mole, Italian sweet salami). Woven into the book are stories about the history and myths of chocolate and its cultivation and production, as well as tips for handling and cooking techniques

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great bargain, as the first reviewer states. There are a plethora of beautiful and inspirational photos, but the recipes are achievable. Many fancy chocolate cookbooks have fabulous looking recipes, but they require half a day, or more, to complete.

My daughter and I just made the Guiness Stout Cake and were very happy with the results.

I haven't tried their easy way of tempering chocolate, yet, but it looks quick and fairly foolproof.

One of the trends in chocolate cookbooks recently, see Chantal Coady's book, is savory dishes. This book includes a variety of tempting fare in that department, too.

I have made a couple of recipes from this book. The pictures are stunning, and I like to support a company that has a social conscience. I really like the Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake (which can be cut into pieces and frozen and keeps really well) and the chocolate mousses. However, I made the brownies and there were way too sweet. Then I started looking at the quantity of sugar that most recipes call for, and discovered that they are really overly sweet. I think you can probably make most of these treats with only half the sugar. In any case, a worthwhile buy.

Format: Paperback
Wow! I've made perhaps half of the recipies in this book, and whilst I have my favorites (the brownies are just to die for), there's not one I wouldn't make again. Most recipies do require good, dark and generally expensive chocolate, but it's well worth the extra expense.

If you love chocolate and don't mind cooking, you'll love this.

If you don't love chocolate yet, this might just convert you.
