    Medrich's Berkeley bakery, Cocolat, helped reignite an interest in fine desserts in the U.S. I was lucky enough to live in the Bay Area while the shop was open and got to sample some of her desserts in person. Everything was superb, and this book records the best of the best of her recipes. A must for any chocolate-lover worthy of the name!

      Extraordinary! I used to live up the hill from Cocolat and this was my favorite dessert. It is a little time-consuming but not difficult and feeds a crowd.

"Cocolat is to chocolate what Tiffany is to diamonds." — Gourmet magazine. One of America's leading chocolatiers shares the secrets behind her decadent, European-style desserts in this elegant hardcover volume. Alice Medrich founded Cocolat, the first in a chain of chocolate shops in 1976, introducing legions of Americans to the joys of chocolate truffles. With this beautifully illustrated, easy-to-follow guide, home cooks and budding pastry chefs can make their own renditions of the shop's sophisticated confections. Each fabulous recipe features detailed instructions that even first-time bakers can follow to create treats that are — almost — too beautiful to eat.
