The introductory text for each recipe was well done and it was nice to read about who each recipe had come form and how. The book has a great foodie tone.
I associate Green & Black's with 70 and 85% cocoa chocolates, as those are the only products of theirs that I have ever bought, and had kind of hoped that some of the recipes would be inspired by these delicious and very dark and slightly bitter products. I also dislike anything loaded with sugar for health reasons.
While there were a few recipes that had 70% chocolate in, most of them also had quite a bit of sugar. Most recipes also had dairy and wheat. Fair enough, this is a book on decadent deserts - not a book on healthy chocolate recipes!
I was really happy though to find three recipes in the book that were low in sugar but also dairy and wheat/grain free (or that at least could be made to be so with some minor alterations in the recipes). They are on pages 110, 111 and 188 if anyone else is interested. I'd love to see some recipes using coconut flour or coconut milk in the next version; though I realise this may not be majority view. You can make a lovely chocolate sauce by melting 85% chocolate into some coconut milk, for example, and it is perfect poured over fresh bananas or berries.
Three cheers for Green & Black's for making all their chocolate products Fair Trade by the end of 2011 too. I just can't buy the non-Fair Trade ones anymore after seeing a documentary of children being mistreated by the chocolate industry. Organic is a must as well as chocolate along with coffee is one of those items it is particularly important to get in an organic version if possible.

Love the multi-coloured version of it - loads of wonderful tasty choccie recipes and would love more if this one is different. Would appreciate some pics Amazon of what is inside....or maybe a look?
