This book is beautifully written, photographed and inspiring. It's edgy and modern, with sophistication and flair. There are so many creative recipes and wonderful gourmet flavor combinations. I really appreciate the stunning photography and modern flavorings of these chocolate confections. I'm also glad that there are other chocolate-inspired recipes that are beyond the bonbons, bars, buttercups and truffles (for instance, fudges, marzipan, gianduja, buckwheat nib cereal, smoothies, and drinks, just to name a few). I'm excited to try many of these creations.

Personally, I was so happy to see a recipe for white chocolate! I've made 3 recipes from the book and they have all turned out better than expected. My only issue with any of the recipes thus far is the white chocolate base. While the flavor is spot on, the use of coconut flour in the chocolate makes for a very gritty texture. However, I like it so much that I continue to make it regardless.

My only issue with this classic book is that there are some gaps in information about ingredients, for instance, like chocolate liquor/paste. I personally know what it is and how to use it, there is no explanation for what it is, how to use it, and why to use it. Another part that is missing from this book is actual processing of the raw chocolate and how it is made, especially raw cocoa butter, raw cocoa powder, and the raw cocoa bean.I know that it is not the intent of the book to show you how to make chocolate from bean to bar, but it would really make the book a more complete all-around raw chocolate book. This does not detract from this beautiful book, but I believe it would only benefit the inclusion of this information.

Raw Food reaches past trendiness into a normal part of life these days. Restaurants, cookbooks, and even most kitchens are equipped to produce raw dishes that satisfy the palate and your hunger. Most cooks have a food processor, definitely needed to get the best results from "Raw Chocolate."

Preparing raw recipes involves some challenges. For example, many require advance planning. A home primarily eating a raw diet has the usual nuts soaking on a daily basis. Those exploring this approach to food or the raw-curious must handle the "Raw Chocolate" cookbook with deliberate intention.

Read the cookbook first--from getting oriented to ingredients, techniques and timing--to choosing a couple of initial recipes that inspire you, I don't recommend plunking the book down on your counter and diving in. I love jumping into a new recipe; here, you are likely to end up doing a header into the muck under the lake. Although paralysis is unlikely, the "now" scenario makes success equally elusive.

Take the time to understand the special ingredients, add them to your pantry, and plan ahead for these recipes. The time and effort is worth the investment.

A good starting place is the Macadamia Brittle. Once you've created a batch of tempered chocolate you may feel impatient to complete a recipe. Consider starting with the brittle. The combined powerful presence of the chocolate base, rich macadamia nuts and swarthy smoked salt reminds my mouth of a dinner party with my best friends. The flow of great conversation, interesting dishes, and the comfort of friendship resides in the flavors of each piece.

One recipe I tested demonstrated the planning needed to complete the recipe. Fortunately, the authors made sure to tell you in the recipe it takes three steps.

This is a gorgeous book with recipes and pictures but the recipes are lacking in explanation and ingredients lists. For instance, where do you find cacao liquor (paste)? this is the first recipe in the book and is used in other recipes throughout the book.

Seriously lacking in information on what ingredients are and where to find them.

We love raw food at our house. I made the white chocolate fudge. There was way too much sweetener for the amount. It was a complete and total waste of the expensive ingredients I used to make it. I really regretted having made it.

While the book is nice to look at, the recipes I have tried are not tasty enough for me. They are way too sweet without any complexity. The sickly sweetness was nauseating - and I love sweet things. I wouldn't normally write a poor review but the recipes I tried (and that were followed, even after adding only 7/8 of the sweetener so it didn't overflow during transfer from bench to blender) had me heading here to report.

I will try another few recipes when I have time because I won't give up just yet (and I will update this review with any success I have. I am not one to ruin recipes ever). The fudge recipes are definitely lacking something. I will go back to my old fudge recipe (raw) that has a far better consistency - pretty close to the traditional fudge. To HAVE to keep the fudge in the fridge to the last second without it becoming a melty mess is not appealing to me. This stuff melts on touching.

Will try something of a different nature from this book in the near future. Wish me luck. I may scour the other reviews to see what others are raving about. Don't start with the fudge.
