Biography

Alice Medrich is inspired and inspiring. In Berkeley, California, in the 1970s, her dessert shop, Cocolat, set new standards of excellence. She has been learning, teaching, and sharing what she loves about dessert making for thirty years.

Her contributions have resulted in the country’s highest cookbook honors, including three Cookbooks of the Year, most recently from the International Association of Culinary Professionals for BitterSweet: Recipes and Tales from a Life in Chocolate. Her other books include Pure Dessert and Chocolate Holidays. Alice lives in Berkeley with her daughter, Lucy.
