Whoever said single-subject cookbooks were tiresome? I think it was me, but that was before Lori Longbotham's homage to chocolatey treats crossed my path.
I practically fell face first, mouth wide open into the gorgeous color photographs by William Meppem. His glossy pics of chocolate souffle cake, chocolate panna cotta and chocolate ice cream sundaes with nib nougatine made me want to try every one of Longbotham's 65-plus recipes.
The recipes themselves are just as inviting. All are plotted out in a straightforward manner and rely on easy-to-find ingredients. Nothing daunts, not even the restauranty Ultimate Chocolate Marquise.
Longbotham also provides a short discourse on the history of chocolate, a glossary, a section on chocolate's connection to good health and a primer on tasting chocolate. -San Diego Union Tribune

Somebody wrote this is Word 2010 or something and printed it directly to a PDF. It screams eBook in the worst possible way and I hate it. I really hate it.Published 2 months ago by Karl Stroud

First, the layout is moronic. You think you're at the start of a recipe only to find out that part of it was on a previous page without any separation from the preceding recipe. Read morePublished on December 3, 2011 by Eric Indiana
