I've wanted this book for a very long time...
on October 11, 2012
I remember when the Chocolatiers first published this book, I was new to artisanal chocolate and Scharffenberger was just starting their stride. It maybe helped they were local to my regional mindset out of Berkeley while I lived in the Napa Valley. At the time however, I could not justify the expense of the retail issue, and perhaps discounted in my mind what value I could gain from having the document in my library. Now that I do have it, I highly recommend the benefits. The recipes are clear and showcase the nuances of chocolate. The story of the founders and their journey is enchanting. This is a book easily picked up and read straight through.
