About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
chocolate- tempering, molds and coating basics
decorations- all types of pretty little ideas plus glazes
pastry doughs and sponges
creamy textures- basic cremeux, pastry cream etc
ice creams, sorbets and sauces
mastering further techniques- like using a piping bag etc..
there is also a little section on the process of how chocolate is made.
every page in the technique section has AT LEAST one picture, many times more than one step is shown and they are beautiful pictures.
the recipe section at first glance looks complicated but reading them through I realized that if you take your time going through the techniques section, there are some variations but every technique has already been shown to you. so I am very excited.
If you are going to buy one book on chocolate, this should be it. It really eases you into it but doesnt withhold information simply because you may not be a trained pastry chef.
I would also say that, unlike some other chocolate books, this book is well suited for the candy-hating chocoholic who loves the flavor and richness of chocolate but does not like particularly sweet food.
Having a well laid out cookbook is the key to having a cookbook people will actually use over and over and recommend to their friends. Yes, Julia Child published her cookbooks this way, but that was many years ago and times have changed. Some of the explanations on the steps of the recipes are not explained well. It makes me wonder if the cookbook was poorly translated. I would not recommend this cookbook for someone who does not know chocolate well.
