Turning her attention to the year’s most special occasions—New Year’s Day, Valentine’s Day, birthdays and anniversaries, Hanukkah and Christmas, and every day in between—Medrich has created dozens of memorable desserts that will help to make the traditions and memories of your celebrations all the more unforgettable.
Whether your holiday festivities are large or small, whether you tend to the homey or the glitzy, you’ll find everything you need in this boutique collection. This revised edition of the previously published A Year in Chocolate includes an extended section on ingredients, equipment, and decorative touches and detailed notes on how to customize the recipes to use the chocolate of your choice.
First published in hardcover as A Year in Chocolate (Warner Books, 2001) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Inside Flap
An ideal year in chocolate might start with a New Year's brunch starring Chocolate Blini with Berry Caviar. Then there are Valentine's Day chocolate scones and St. Patrick's Day Irish Coffee Chocolate Mousse. And of course any "holiday" your imagination can conjure up is a perfect reason to indulge: perhaps a decadently rich hot chocolate served in demitasse portions to exorcise those end-of-February blues.
Spring might whisper chocolate Giant Krispy Easter Treats or a Passover Chocolate Nut Sponge Torte, or white chocolate-glazed Apricot Orange Cupcakes for a wedding shower. Summer suggests fruit and ice cream desserts such as the Independence Day red, white, and blue sundaes, followed by autumn's pies and tarts laden with chocolate and nuts. And no matter what you've been putting on the table for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays past, it will be out-chocolated by Alice's Chocolate Cranberry Pudding and her Chocolate Hazelnut Roulade--both unequivocally year-end musts.
In Chocolate Holidays, Medrich unlocks the secrets of our favorite sweet, offering chocolate desserts for every season, for every reason.
First published in hardcover as "A Year in Chocolate" (Warner Books, 2001)

I have both "Chocolate Holidays" and "A Year in Chocolate" and the main difference is that Alice dropped her editor and managing editor from the Acknowledgements :-) The number of pages hasn't changed (a good thing for the editor: the references still work :-) The "new" book claims to have "an extended section on ingredients, equipment, and decorative touches and detailed notes on how to customize the recipes to use the chocolate of your choice"... hmmm, let's see. Hey! "microplane" is now spelled "Microplane"! And the listings for Pastry Tips and Pastry Brushes have been flipped! Pastry Brushes goes first now!!
The only added feature (the aforementioned "detailed notes on how to customize the recipes to use the chocolate of your choice") is the "Chocolate Note" that appears on some (not all) of the recipies.Read more ›
This is a great book at a great price, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for holiday ideas or just anyone who loves chocolate.

The cookbook was purchased as a gift for my sister-in-law. The recipes were not as main stream as I had hoped. Hopefully the recipes will be worth the effort.Published on January 7, 2008 by E. Robinson
