From the Publisher

Chocolate is full of texture and taste and it can be turned into sweet and savoury, simple and sophisticated recipes. Above all, chocolate inspires many moods and so the chapters are divided into Magic (glamorous recipes for dinner parties), Abracadabra (quick and easy recipes), Light and Airy (light puddings and mousses that melt on your tongue), Licking the Bowl (for children and birthdays) and Wicked (those irresistible concoctions). As well as the more traditional ideas for cakes, puddings and biscuits, there are also more surprising recipes for soups (chocolate soup), chillis and meat (chicken mole, Italian sweet salami). Woven into the book are stories about the history and myths of chocolate and its cultivation and production, as well as tips for handling and cooking techniques

This is a great bargain, as the first reviewer states. There are a plethora of beautiful and inspirational photos, but the recipes are achievable. Many fancy chocolate cookbooks have fabulous looking recipes, but they require half a day, or more, to complete.

My daughter and I just made the Guiness Stout Cake and were very happy with the results.

I haven't tried their easy way of tempering chocolate, yet, but it looks quick and fairly foolproof.

One of the trends in chocolate cookbooks recently, see Chantal Coady's book, is savory dishes. This book includes a variety of tempting fare in that department, too.

Wow! I've made perhaps half of the recipies in this book, and whilst I have my favorites (the brownies are just to die for), there's not one I wouldn't make again. Most recipies do require good, dark and generally expensive chocolate, but it's well worth the extra expense.

If you love chocolate and don't mind cooking, you'll love this.

If you don't love chocolate yet, this might just convert you.

I found this book in a charity shop quite cheap and thought that I would give it a try but I have to say that I was quite disappointed. The recipe that caught my eye and actually gave me the idea to buy it was the Gorgonzola Dolce with Dark Chocolate. Don't get me wrong, there are a few nice recipes but when you advertise yourself as the best chocolate book in the world people do end out expecting more than you get in this book. Many of the recipes are very basic and there aren't many photos either. Most recipes were sent to them by people who use their chocolate, so it is not really as if they sat down and thought about the recipes themselves. Also they talk a lot about being green, and that is great but then use a microwave! That is something that I will never use, ever! Somehow the recipes seem to be aimed at people who want to feed a lot of people with their creations. Were they expecting to get people to buy a lot more chocolate? Especially when you are trying out a recipe you don't want to make a huge cake so… I will be scaling down most recipes. The story of the ins and outs of making chocolate is very interesting but all in all, if I hadn't bought this book very cheap I wouldn't have bought it at all!

This book is a call to action. Makes you want to run to the kitchen with it's beautiful images and interesting stories so you can read while you're waiting for the oven to heat up. With so many unique recipes-not just chocolate cake, it's a bargain!

I have looked through this cookbook and it has some very interesting recipe combinations but alas I have not had the time to test any of them. Good Luck.
