Publishers Text

In this scrumptious collection, revered chef Marcel Desaulniers serves up some of his most inventive, most sinful, most seductive chocolate creations ever. Here are such mouthwatering delights as Heart of Darkness Cake, the ultimate cupcake with a melted chocolate truffle center. Chocolate Almond Cake with Red Raspberry Mousse (the very cake Desaulniers created for Julia Child's birthday); Chocolate Chunk Cookie Cake and more.


For chocoholics eager for a quick fix, Desaulniers includes plenty of fast, easy recipes, some of which come from his mother's circle of chocolate-lover friends. From Margie's Golden Raisin Heavy Fudge Cake, to Mimi Montano's Chocolate Zucchini Cake, these desserts are sure to please the most discriminating dessert lover. Included too is a collection of ice cream, sauces, beverages, and other delectables that complement these traditions.
