Reviews about this book

  • Boston Globe by T. Susan Chang

    ...we think of chocolate craftsmen as painstaking lab technicians...Despite this intimidating aura, Shotts's book...emboldened me to make the attempt in the distinctly unscientific setting of my home.

  • Vanilla molded chocolates

    • Not So Humble Pie

      Each of the book's chocolate recipes have a rating, from easy to difficult. These vanilla truffles are marked easy and they really are. Best of all they're smooth, creamy and fragrant with vanilla.
