Review

"...SWEET!" -- Mark Braun, Food Industry News, Dec. 2003

Mouth watering... Photos, recipes, stories, insights clamor for attention in this tasty nugget of a book. -- Myrna Katz Frommer and Harvey Frommer, Travel-Watch, Nov. 2003

Packed with grand tidbits of history, as well as lots of sources to feed your need for this decadent sweet. -- CeCe Sullivan, Seattle Times, December 2003

This book, with its mix of chocolate history, recipes and passages about chocolate in French, gratified both of my addictions. -- Debra F. Weber, www.frenchfood.about.com, Nov. 2003 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

CHOCOLATE FRENCH is essentially a stylish and modern 'Chocolate Lover's Guide to French.' This is the kind of guide that you take with you to the kitchen, the restaurant, and on a trip. The recipes range from simple and delicious (chocolate madeleines, crepes, and creme brulee) to elaborate yet doable. CHOCOLATE FRENCH has contributions from some of the world's top chefs and chocolate makers, and these recipes are their secret chocolate favorites. It's hard to top a Foreword by Paris's oldest chocolate maker, 200 year-old Debauve & Gallais, or a recipe from one of France's best celebrity chocolatiers, Jean-Paul Hévin. Not to mention all those great international chefs involved. Plus, while you're looking for what to make tonight, you'll pick up some great anecdotes and useful information about French language and culture along the way to your ultimate chocolate reward. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By Toni VINE VOICE on June 24, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
MERCI BEAUCOUP to all the reviewers and to the two magazine reviews that highly recommended this wonderful book!! I have been so enchanted with everything about it, albeit that being a Francophile hasn't hurt. It had been one of the recommendations from Amazon, and after being intrigued by a little peek into its content, the reviewers made my decision easy. Voila......how much fun it is!

It's not a large book, almost pocket size in fact. And it's not a recipe-only book either, though it has enough recipes within to add to the already interesting musings of the relationship between the French and chocolate.

Photographs of French life, French patisseries and chocolatiers, along with the written musings (both in French with most given their English translation) of those who have gone before, or who are here now, dot the chapters of this incredible guide to all that is worthy of French chocolate. And lest you not be particularly proficient in French, there are various pages of assistance with understanding French accent marks, and, adverbs of quantity (though, is there such an error as wanting too much chocolate?). There is also a lovely section within the end of the book that gives you an English translation of the French vocabulary of ingredients, expressions, verbs, and general chocolate terms. Recipe contributors, recipe ingredient resources (from all over the world) help to round out your veritable tour of the chocolate delights of France.

As you begin your perusing of this guide, you are given hotels, bistros, and other assorted places that serve various chocolate delights.

I received this book as a gift and was very pleasantly surprised with the book. I loved how the author weaved the culture and history of chocolate of the French with some amazing recipes from around the world. I also enjoyed the vocabulary, which has allowed me to impress my friends with my new knowledge of the nuances of chocolate. If you know someone who is a chocolate fan, this book is for him or her.

This is truly a unique publication. Not only is it well laid out but also ties in multiple disciplines in a single book, including history, culture and cooking. The recipes are easy and don't require you to clutter you kitchen with ingredients. I would highly recommend this book. For you local San Franciscans I would combine another publication by Crump - The Cafes Of San Francisco with this one and it would make a great gift - the holidays are around the corner!!
